Celebrate parenting, Alzheimer’s, Heaven’s Road

Hamish MacQueen, the Diocesan Director of Youth Services, has been chosen to help launch a Celebrate online parenting course. He explains the vision.

You may remember in the past that the Diocesan Youth Service has helped run ‘Celebrate East Anglia’ which was a faith-based conference for all the family. Celebrate doesn’t only run conferences and starting this November they are running an online parenting course with practical advice to help parents bring up their children in the faith.  At quite short notice, I have been asked me to help run it and promote it in East Anglia.

The invitation is open to all parents, grandparents and anyone who looks after children. The course starts on Tuesday November 2 and will help you show children the reality of a life with God and to empower them to have their own vibrant two-way relationship with Him. 

Registration closes this Sunday evening, October 31. For more information see
