Family Life Ministry (FLM)

Diocese of Leeds

Started in the 1990s by Fr John Nunan, and

led by Sr Anne Conway

in the Diocese of Leeds was a broad spectrum

peer ministry of and with families.

Since 2013 Family Life Ministry has been reduced to

one person, one day a week in term time only.

The current focus is positive parenting support

via local and trained parenting course facilitators.
