Ministry Marriage Retreat
registrations for 2017 have closed -
we will advise of next years availability when known
A two day conference for those couples involved in ministry and are interested in growing and developing their marriage.
We suggest .... you end the first days training with a date-night and, if possible, include city hotel accommodation - time away from parish and family, time to reflect on the days teaching without distractions.
What people have said ....
"The content was excellent. So many helpful and different ways to look at marriage. I found both Jim and Lesley very easy to listen to."
"Jim & Lesley do a fantastic job as a couple. With their years of experience to share, it was an engaging and helpful presentation."
"My husband & I just wanted to send a big thank you to you for all you did on organising this week's marriage retreat. We were so blessed by this time away & helpful teaching for our marriage in the context of ministry. We also really appreciated the wonderful food & snacks provided (especially my husband haha), but it was lovely! I'm sure there was so much organising that went on behind the scenes but it was an invaluable time for us & will definitely help our ministry (with God's help)! Thanks again"
