The Northern Education programme which caters for Local Shared Ministry Units from Bream Bay northwards is having a change of content for April only. On 18 April, Heather Bond, a trainer for the Prepare/Enrich course will offer a one-day training at St Stephen’s Onerahi. There is room for a few more participants, although we have enough numbers to proceed.
This is an opportunity to become familiar with a tool, which involves an online questionnaire, which helps couples to prepare for marriage or to enrich their relationship.
We are able to offer a much-reduced rate for the day’s attendance and resources. It is $95.00 for an individual, or $120.00 for a couple. (A couple shares the resource material). This is partly due to St. Stephen’s kindly providing the venue (with comfortable chairs!), and the fact that we all bring food to share for lunch. If you would like to participate, please make a comment on this post (or phone, below). Comments will reach me as an email (please include your own email address in the comment!). Please note that you do not need to be ordained to undertake this training. People involved in pastoral care or counselling, for example could offer this service in their Ministry Unit setting, provided they have the support of the Ministry Support Team.
The details are:
Saturday 18 April, 9am – 4pm
St Stephen’s Anglican Church, 167 Church St. Onerahi, Whangarei (not far past the end of the airport runway)
Please bring food to share for lunch or morning tea
The Enablers and Bishop Jim are pleased to be in support of this learning opportunity
