All families are invited to contribute to the community at Worth. We believe it is very important to keep in regular contact with parents whether your child is boarding at Worth or attending school on a day basis.
For a number of years the Chaplaincy has been running a series of seminars for parents. The seminars have been organised as a result of a need expressed by parents to meet each other to discuss issues of mutual concern.
Some of the seminars have focused on parenting challenges like our highly successful series on Parenting and Adolescence which included topics such as 'Sexual morality – where do the Christian boundaries lie?' and 'Giving your teenagers room to grow: challenges and opportunities.' Other seminars have focused more on the spiritual growth of the parents themselves. To help people cope with the pressures and stresses of modern living, we have had sessions devoted to different forms of prayer. Other topics in recent years have included 'Wisdom at Work' and 'A Spirituality for Busy People'.
Undoubtedly parents have greatly enjoyed getting to know each other better. Each seminar provides plenty of opportunity to discuss issues in small groups. One of the really encouraging aspects of all the seminars has been the exceptional level of participation.
