The Wednesday Word Family Time

What is Wednesday Word Family Time?

With today's busy lifestyles, many parents can be deprived of any regular quality Family Time with their children. Wednesday Word Family Time is a very special 10 minutes, weekly time together. It focuses on talking and listening to each other and is suitable for families with primary school children of all ages.

Wednesday Word Family Time is a time when family members really get to know each other at a deeper level. It seeks to assist parents and carers to help their children to live well in our present day culture; to help them grow in goodness and make safe and wise choices as they mature.

Children need to know that they are loved unconditionally, and we help them develop positive self-esteem by communicating the value we feel for them. Words of encouragement and love will come naturally from time spent focusing on the words of Jesus in Wednesday Word Family Time together.

This special time together has a spiritual and faith focus. It has been extensively trialled and is invaluable for building and maintaining long lasting family relationships. Please click here to read how Wednesday Word Family Time has enriched the lives of many families.
