Marriage is a lifelong adventure -
- stop for some refreshment this October


THE WORKSHOP

Every marriage needs to be refreshed and sustained and nurtured. This October, we want to help refresh and build your marriage, with experienced presenters Kim and Scott Parry-Jones.

The Marriage Refresh workshop is a combination of solid teaching to impart skills and wisdom, as well as group discussions and time for couples to apply what they have learnt to their own marriages.

THE PRESENTERS

pj.jpg

Scott and Kim Parry-Jones have been married for over 40 years, with four married children and a growing number of grand-children! They are both Christians, involved and serving at EV Church on the Central Coast for over 20 years.

Scott serves on many not-for-profit boards under umbrellas of poverty relief, economic development, church leadership development and mentoring, church planting and marriage ministries. Kim, a former Primary School teacher, has a long history working with women's ministries, Bible teaching, course development and mentoring. She is a qualified Relationship Counsellor and assists Scott in his ministries.

Kim and Scott's depth of knowledge, practical experience and role-plays, coupled with their easy going manner and sense of humour disarm the concerns most couples have coming to a marriage event so as to make the time spent rewarding, enriching and fun.

  • Step 2. Register your kids below (Rego closes by the end of Thurs 20th June)

  • Step 3. Drop your kids off anytime between 5:30pm-8:30pm on Sat June 22nd. We'll feed them for $5/child (max $15 per family) and look after them until you return.

  • Step 4. Go on your date. We’ve made the time, now you just have to choose where you will go. Might be good to book a table or plan something delightful at home. Enjoy!

'For the love of God' lounge room screening

‘FOR THE LOVE OF GOD’ screening

“How the church is better and worse than you ever imagined”

With our regular Community Groups enjoying a summer break, you’re invited to Dave + Mera’s for a lounge room screening of last year’s documentary ‘For the love of God’.

Wed 9 Jan - at Dave + Mera’s (use the contact form if you don’t know our address)
Arrive from 7.30pm. We’ll do a pizza order at 7.40pm (bring $10) + eat during ‘interval’ !!

RSVP on our St Luke’s members
forum, or if you’re not on that please RSVP via the contact form.

Here’s the blurb:

HOW THE CHURCH IS BETTER + WORSE THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED

Christian history is full of violence, corruption, and oppression.

So does religion poison everything?

For the Love of God is a documentary that confronts the worst that Christians have done, and traces the origins of Western values like human rights, charity, and non-violence back to the influence of Jesus.

This is not the history we think we know.

Join John Dickson, Justine Toh, and Simon Smart on location around the globe and in conversation with leading scholars as they weigh up the good, the bad, the ugly - and the unexpected - when it comes to the impact Christianity has had on the world we live in.
