About the Event

Sarah Holmes is a research at Liverpool Hope University.  Her main research area is all about nurturing young faith, including the role of grandparents. She is married, with four children and we are delighted to be able to welcome her back to the Children Can Grandparenting forum. 

Olly Goldenberg has been involved in discipling the next generaiton and connecting generations together for the the last decades. Together with his wife, Helen, he has produced many resources for children, young people, parents and families to raise a generation who will stand strong for God and live out their full potential in Him. 

Ralph & Helen Goldenberg are Olly's parents and amazing grandparents to their 9 grandchildren. Their wisdom and experience in being both active and proactive as grandparents, as well as their decades of experience in ministry as church leaders, means they have much to contribute to this discussion. 

Grandparenting is full of a mix of emotions and experiences - it can feel like a rollercoaster ride at times. What can we do when we feel stretched as a grandparent, either by your own expectations or the expectations of others?  What if you are not capable of giving out any more? What if you can give more but are blocked by others? In short how can we manage the highs and lows of grandparenting without losing sight of our sanity or God's vision for our grandchildren. We'll be diving into all this together at this forum. 

We will also be setting aside some time to pray together for our grandchildren. 

Join us for this free forum as you invest your time to fulfil this key ministry to your grandchildren in this season of your life. 

Please note the key talks from this session will be recorded, but discussions will not be recorded to allow attendees to speak freely about heir own stiuations if they wish to.

If you have any further questions about this forum, please contact us here: 

We look forward to seeing you there.
