What are the main features of a Christian upbringing? Can you work out the main features of a religious upbringing from the picture clues? Try to give a little bit of detail about each one.
BAPTISM During BAPTISM the child is welcomed into the Church. Godparents, friends and the congregation promise to be a good Christian example for the developing child.
WORSHIP Praying at home and going to Church are a big part of a Christian upbringing. By going to Church regularly the majority of people the young person will meet will have a belief in God.
School • Christian parents will often choose a Church school. • They will also often send their child to Sunday School usually held at their Church. • Parents will also often educate their children at home about their religion.
Confirmation • Christian parents, the Church and Church schools will encourage children to make a commitment to their faith. • This is known as confirmation – the child confirms that they want to be part of that faith.
Being part of the community • Churches often provide social events to bring the family and community together. • EXAMPLES: Prayer/bible groups, youth clubs, parties (to celebrate festivals).

BAPTISM Children are started out in life religious. The decision to be religious is made for them. The child is now part of the church community and this can further influence them.
WORSHIP The majority of people the young person will meet will be religious and this will encourage their developing faith. Seeing so many people worshipping God when they go to church will make them believe God exists.
School • Church school continues to surround the child with a strong sense of community that all believe the same thing. • They will be taught that God exists when they go to Sunday school, or Church school, and will believe because their teachers tell them its true.
Confirmation • The young person can now confirm for themselves the promises made by their parents during their baptism.
Being part of the community • A sense of belonging helps the young person to express their faith and build friendships with other people of a similar age that believe the same thing.
