The Marriage Course

Returning again soon is the popular Marriage Course.

The course runs over 8 sessions, starting 14th May 2015 and finishing 9th July 2015.

Each evening follows a similar pattern beginning with a meal at 7.00pm with the session itself starting at 7.35pm and finishing at 9.45pm. The venue is the Coffee Shop at the Old School Rooms. 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.

We will 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 as soon as possible – Tel: 0117 979 3418 or julie@stmichaelsbristol.org  or download the booking form

Church Office

 

As you will probably be aware, the church office has now relocated to the new church centre.

However, the building itself is still very much a building site, and is still under control and responsbility of Bray & Slaughter.

So for everyone’s health and safety we need to limit the number of people who come to the office.

If you need to contact Laura, Dave or Caroline over the next few weeks – if possible please do so via email or telephone.   

Thank you very much for bearing with us during this time.
