Four Day Event
Thursday - Sunday
With marriages facing so many pressures, ‘Time out for Married Couples’ is designed to do just that, to give you some quality time out in order to bless you, acknowledge the struggles, and help you flourish in your marriage.
Whether you’re recently married or have been married for many years, this course is designed to help couples who want to enter more fully into God’s plans and purposes for their marriage and to enjoy their lives together.
We will explore what makes marriage so important to God and such a gift to humanity. We will also take an honest look at what can go wrong, how we get wounded and wound others, and how we can apply God’s healing and restoration to one of the most important relationships in our lives.
In addition, the weekend will include time and space to spend together in the beautiful surroundings of the centre, to reflect and to be creative together. There will also be opportunities to receive prayer ministry from an experienced ministry couple.
This course is for couples coming together rather than just one person from a marriage.
Registration starts from 11am on the first day and the course begins with lunch at 1pm. The course ends after lunch on the last day.
The rooms will all be twin, with beds pulled together where possible! Rooms will be either ensuite or otherwise have a private bathroom.
The teaching will be Biblically grounded and include:
