Based on the research from the Fuller Institute Sticky Faith is a training workshop on how to make faith stick in young people even after they leave home.  This covers important material for all parents, youth and children's workers and those involved in children and youth work in churches or schools.

Thank you for your interest in Sticky Faith. We have run Sticky Faith in 22 venues in the Midlands Region over the past 18 months and new venues for the 2014 Autumn term are being arranged. Details will be published here on this page once they have been confirmed.
