We would like to invite you to take an opportunity to work on your marriage. This course is available to all married couples and will help you grow in your relationship. No matter what stage you are in your marriage, whether things are going well or you are experiencing challenges at the moment this day will be of great encouragement to you. The day is hosted by Sam and Sanaa Labib and Rob and Anne Willis.
In April we held our first “new look” marriage enrichment day with 10 great couples from diverse backgrounds and age groups. The Lord blessed us in an amazing way, all who came were enthusiastic and engaged well with the program, which we intend to repeat on Saturday 21st July.
The participants suggested further topics which will be included in our marriage enrichment day on Saturday 10th November.
-Family of Origin: Unpacking the Baggage
-Sexuality: Sex as God intended it
-Conflict Resolution: enough said!
-Christ Centred Marriage (shared dreams, adventure, ministry and mission)
