What has a Parenting Children's Course got to do with Christian Workplace Groups?

It is always great to hear of the exciting things workplace groups are up to, and this account from Wessex Water Christian Group is no exception. Hugh, our south-west ambassador, spoke with Matt Wheeldon, who helps lead the group, about a recent initiative.

Wessex Water Christian Group ran a parenting children course on site during the lunch hour. It is a course written by Holy Trinity Brompton and was delivered by a member of their local church. The course contains the usual things you might expect in a parenting course but specifically advice on building strong foundations, love in action, setting boundaries and building character. The course is designed to be suitable for both those with and without faith, and contains some input with a Christian bias in the final week.

Matt says that the turn-out was around 15 people with a 50/50 mix of faith and non-faith attendees, and that it has been well received by those attending. The group sought permission from management to run this course for all staff after hearing that a few colleagues were having serious parenting issues with no one to turn too. This is an excellent example of a Christian Workplace Group meeting the needs of colleagues and being a tangible benefit for the organisation as a whole. It is also wonderful to see the local church supporting the work of a local business through the Christian Workplace Group.
