The Life Course

A chance to explore the meaning of life in a relaxed and informal environment.

The Life Course is an seven week course about the meaning of life and the basics of Christian faith.

We’ll ask questions like: What meaning do we give our lives? Is there an ultimate meaning to life? How can we make the most of life? That sort of thing…

The course is for anyone, irrespective of belief or lack thereof. It’s non-judgemental. It’s not about forcing you into some set of beliefs. And we don’t want your money.

Many people are not regular church goers. The course runs for 7 weeks and there are two opportunities to do the course this term:

Wednesday evenings:  4 October – 22 November / 7:30-9:30pm (no session 25 October). Each evening starts with a really good meal followed by an engaging talk on meaning and Christian faith. This is followed by coffee and discussion groups.

Thursday mornings: 5 October – 30 November, 9:30 – 11:30am (no session  25 October). The session begins with coffee, cake and a chance to say hi. Then we hear an engaging talk on a topic to do with meaning and Christian faith which is followed by discussion in groups. There’ll also be a away day for both courses on Saturday 18 November.

Family Time / Parenting Children

Family Time is a six week course which helps parents to take time out to reflect and gain inspiration from others, as well as finding a fresh vision for their family.

It’s a course for parents who are either just starting out and looking for direction as to how to begin or those parents who are seeking fresh input into their parenting. For those who are married we encourage both parents to attend the course. We begin at 7.45pm with a talk which will be followed by refreshments and then discussion groups. The evening will finish at 10pm.

“I feel I have been given a gift of a very full tool kit to use for the rest of my life”

“An excellent course. It gave us lots of food for thought and also made us more confident”

“Brilliant, enjoyable. I thought 6 weeks would be a long time but it flew by. I would recommend this course to all parents of young, and older, children”

Family Time / Parenting Teenagers

Facing teenagers’ issues together with other parents

Parenting Teenagers is a six session course that provides an opportunity for parents to connect with other parents facing similar issues through the teenage years.

Parents of teenagers easily become isolated from each other when there is no more standing at the school gate or collecting children from each other’s homes. This course provides a place for ongoing friendship and support. It also provides an opportunity to take a fresh look at our parenting – at the relationship we have built with our children and how we can help that to grow. It aims to help parents identify the areas in which they are strong, and those where they wish to improve. We begin at 7.45pm with a talk at 8pm. This will be followed by refreshments and then discussion groups. The evening will finish at 10pm.

What does the Course Cover?

Teenage Universe / Teenage Communication / Teenage Growth / Teenage Tensions / Teenage Issues / Teenage Pressures

“It gave us fresh hope and motivation to reconnect with our teenager.”

“It was such a relief to realise that we shared similar experiences with other parents of teenagers – we weren’t the only ones!”

“We loved getting together with other parents in a relaxed atmosphere.”
