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)

We’re doing something special these holidays by focusing in on ‘life skills’ such as sewing and basic construction.
