Fathers for the Fatherless
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 06-10-2014
Fathers Day is a great marketing opportunity for pen knife manufacturers , greeting card producers and mens hosiery. It's not an age old festival having only been created in the 20th century to complement Mother's Day but I want to make a plea that we need to make the most of it . I know it can be a sensitive time for people who have grown up without a Dad or even worse with an abusive father. I know it can be difficult for single people and childless couples who…

Make the Most of Father’s Day
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 05-15-2014
There are so many children waiting in care for a father in their lives.  Some have had to be removed from their parents because of neglect or abuse. Some have never known a father's love. This father's day help us to inspire men to step forward to make a difference to vulnerable children lives. I spend a lot of my time  travelling the UK speaking with churches about the need but also the clear biblical mandate for us to care for the vulnerable in our communities. Every where I go I…

Home for Good Liverpool
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 04-22-2014
I have spent a lot of time up in Liverpool recently. It's been great to see Home for Good Liverpool taking off up there thanks to the support of Frontline Church, Bridge Chapel and Liverpool Lighthouse.  Helenor and Phil Watson and Si and June Valentine are local heroes doing a brilliant job pulling things together. They have some big meetings coming up so please pray for their work across the city. The aim is to help find all the foster carers and adoptive carers that the city needs so that…

All out at All Souls
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-30-2014
Just on my way home from a lovely evening with All Souls Church, Langham Place.  It was a very moving evening with testimonies from a young man who was adopted aged 8 now working at All Souls Church, an adoption social worker who works for a London borough and a High Court Judge who is often making difficult choices about whether to remove children from at risk families or not.  Mark Meynell was in fine form preaching up a storm on God’s heart for the vulnerable and God’s heart for…

Claire is a fighter. She doesn't give up easily and its a good thing too. Claire is definitely someone you want on your side when the going gets tough.  I have seen Claire in action - its because of her tenacity  championing the needs of children in care that Care for the Family got excited about Home for Good. Claire's adoption story is  a powerful one, it should come with a health warning. Claire and her husband Alan, already had three birth children when they felt lead to adopt a…

Rachel used to avoid Mothers Day services…
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-24-2014
Rachel and Jason have been dear friends since we were in a church together in Harrow.  Rachel told me recently that Mothers' Day was a really difficult day for her as she and Jason had been trying for a child for some time. Rachel explained to me that  she would either not turn up at church at all that day or try to stay out of sight helping out in creche or youth ministry on that day. With Mothers Day coming up this weekend, its important for those of us…

Dianne’s life was going along fine until…
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-22-2014
Its been a privilege to get to know Dianne Louise Jordan over the last couple of years. We bumped into eachother when I was talking about the season of Advent on Songs of Praise (my one and only foray on SoP). Dianne was presenting and shared some of her story with me and she has been a wonderful advocate for Home for Good ever since. Dianne was kind enough to share her powerful story for us to help inspire women single, married, with kids already or with no children to…

World Downs Syndrome Day
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-21-2014
There is a hidden genocide going on. A friend of mine told me she went in for a routine pregnancy check up a couple of months ago and was told by her midwife that she should have the amniocentesis because she would "of course want to abort" if it was her foetus was found to have Down Syndrome. My friend was shocked by this response. I read recently in the Guardian that in Denmark "95% of all Danish parents to be, decide to have an abortion if they find out that they…

Mums for Good and Forever
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 03-20-2014
I have been having mixed feelings about Mothers Day for a number of years now. Don't get me wrong, I think mothers are amazing and a day to celebrate their role and calling is more than appropriate. I want to shout to the world about my wonderful wife's amazing ministry as a birth mum, adoptive mum and foster mum. Not to mention my own mother's care for me and the Christlikeness I see in  so many of the mums I know. But Mother's Day has  always been a bit of…
