Are you recently divorced or separated from a significant relationship and left with emotions of loneliness, shock, rejection, guilt, anger or bitterness? Perhaps you have been divorced or separated for some time but find yourself still struggling with moving forward with your life?
DRW is a national charity running workshops around the country by people who themselves have come through significant relationship breakdown. The aim of the workshops are to help and support people to better understand what they are going through and move on. So “you can go through it or grow through it”.
A new 6 week workshop is starting at St. Michael’s Church Centre on Monday 27th February 7pm- 9pm. For further information, to discuss or book onto the course, contact Jean on 01454 854482 or Nick or Sally on 01454 250376, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
We have 2 Alpha courses starting very soon! One on Wednesday evenings and one on Friday afternoons. Alpha is an 8 week course (plus a taster session and a day together in the middle) during which we have the opportunity to discuss all sorts of issues related to the Christian faith. There’s a topic for each session, but we can discuss anything and everything! If you’re new to faith, or just thinking about it, come and join us on Wednesday 11th January at 7pm or Friday 13th January at 1pm both in St Michael’s Centre. You are welcome just to turn up, but if you can register your interest in advance that would be helpful. You can sign up here for the evening session, or here for the daytime session. Or alternatively call Vicky on 0117 969 2486
Returning again soon is the popular Marriage Course.
The course runs over 8 sessions, starting 6th October 2016. It runs over 8 sessions and is designed as a kind of ‘MOT’ for marriages to help strengthen foundations and build intimacy for couples who are already married.
The course will be led by Chris and Julie Bradley with support from other couples who have done the Marriage Course before.
The content will be a combination of live input (from your hosts), teaching input using material produced by Nicky and Sila Lee from Holy Trinity Brompton Church, London (home of the Alpha course), with opportunity during the evening for reflection and discussion between husband and wife.
Each evening begins with a meal at 7.00pm followed by the session which finishes at 9.45pm.
The venue is the Coffee Shop at the Old School Rooms.
We’ll be making a charge of £60 per couple to cover the cost of materials and also the food for each week, but please do not be put off by the cost – we would rather have you than your money and any contribution (however small) will be acceptable and welcome.
If you are interested in registering or finding out more then please contact Julie Bradley or register your interest here.
Thinking of making or updating your Will? What about Powers of Attorney? or Care Home fees?
