LAM Marriage Workshop
Unfortunately, almost all of us enter into married life with a lack of skills and tools to help create the marriage we desire – one filled with love, intimacy, enjoyment, hope, and security. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. THERE IS HOPE. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been married a month or 20 years… We’ve all had those times of escalating conflicts, feeling hurt and frustrated toward each other, and experiencing the pain and stress of disconnection – even hopelessness at times. We understand, and LAM workshops have helped thousands of couples world-wide learn how to restore, maintain, and deepen the connection in their marriage relationship, regardless of their history. You can build, restore and protect the intimacy in your marriage by getting equipped with the right skills and tools, and learning to navigate the intricacies of marriage with God. It’s time to discover what God really intended for your marriage.
Next workshop starts: 24th July 2020 (workshop runs for 12 weekly sessions)

Ipswich Hospital Foundation Park2Park has a strong history and tradition for the Foundation and our community.
This year, the 16th annual Park2Park will be slightly different. With the global COVID19 pandemic, Park2Park will be going VIRTUAL. Park2Park can be completed by participants at any time over the four-week event rather than the singular Sunday in previous years. Participants can choose any distance, run it wherever they like, when they like, they can even choose a bigger run and break it up. All funds raised will be going to virtual healthcare.
Drive For Life Stafford Needs Volunteer Mentors
Salvos Drive for Life is a positive learner driver mentoring program that helps young people who are striving to succeed.
Do you know someone with two hours a week to help a learner driver achieve their licence?
Volunteer Mentors require nothing more than their driving skills and experience to share with the learner.
Established in 2017, the program provides the cars, fuel and insurance. Mentors provide their time, experience and goodwill.
If you enjoy working with young people, or you know someone who is interested in helping young people gain independence, please consider Drive for Life!
Strict hygiene procedures are now in place for as long as necessary.
Cereal for Coffee Cafe Event 2020
This year, we’re supporting school kids and our local cafés.
