Countesthorpe Baptist Church in Leicester has become a local hub for home educators over the past few years thanks to a fortnightly home education group overseen by the church.

A couple of years ago we had the idea of hosting a conference that we might be able to bless other home-educating families from further afield.

The second Firm Foundations conference for Christian home educators was held on 6 April this year at Brockington College. Tickets sold out in three days, and we were thrilled to host around 200 adults and 300 children on the day itself.
