father and child‘Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.’ Proverbs 4:23

Everyone seems to have an opinion…books, webpages, courses, online communities, TV celebs, ‘Great Aunt Nel’ all have advice to offer on how parenting should be approached.

As a church community we are convinced that the human family is God’s idea and that the Gospel provides the foundation for parenting. These convictions shape our vision for the place of children and young people in the life of the church and our desire to support and equip parents in their God given responsibilities. So whether you are expecting your first baby, keeping up with a pre-schooler, doing the school run or navigating teenage years ‘Parents at Myton’ hopes to help you and your child(ren) love Jesus and display his glory in your family life.

This means we won’t be duplicating the resources or common sense advice that secular groups offer but highlighting principles and practise that are informed by the Gospel. Over time we hope to provide a smorgasbord of resources, including people, books, talks, prayer groups and courses to help parents whatever their circumstances and the age of their children.
