SHINE Family Learning

SHINE Family Learning is an integral part of our ministry, it was set up on Kingsmere in response to the scripture and prophetic word from Malachi 4 verse 6: He will return the hearts of the parents to their children and the hearts of the children to their parents.  Prophetic word for Kingsmere: Turning to God will be seen in the restoration of family relationship.  Over the past two years the demand for parenting courses has grown.  Not just to support the needs of families on Kingsmere but in Bicester town and surrounding villages. Therefore, this work is now a project of Bicester Christian Action. Our team has grown and includes professionals from other churches in Bicester and we have many partners who provide funding and support from the local community who share our heart for supporting all families.
