The Marriage Sessions

'The Marriage Sessions' is a series of four evenings, on alternate weeks, designed to help any married couple strengthen their relationship. Each evening consists of food and drinks, stories from couples, a practical talk and couple discussion time in a relaxed atmosphere.

A great opportunity to invest in the future of your marriage. This will run for 4 sessions at the Lee site at 7:30pm-9:30pm 8 & 22 May, 12 & 26 June.

................

The key themes explored in the four sessions are:
Cherish –the forgotten vow and how to keep your love alive
Connect – understanding each other and the art of communication
Collaborate – dealing with pressure points and handling conflict well
Commit – love is a choice when the going gets tough

There is no group work and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

The course starts on Tuesday 8th May, at the Lee site, and runs on 22nd May, 12th June and 26th June.

The cost is £40 per couple. This includes food and drinks each week and all the course materials that you'll need.

Think Conference - Reaching Post-Christians

Think Conference - Reaching Post-Christians

The West is not as post-Christian as it thinks it is. No doubt there are places on earth where it can feel like the wider culture is currently rejecting Christianity at an unprecedented rate. But the ideology that characterises post-Christendom is still, despite itself, irreducibly Christian. Imagine a cryogenically frozen Viking waking up in twenty-first century Scandinavia, or a Mayan exploring contemporary Mexico, or Asterix and Obelix encountering German social democracy or French laïcité. As “secular” as those places might feel to many of us, their values would seem deeply Christian to anyone who had not experienced them before.

Still: it is obviously the case that living in the world of late modernity presents plenty of challenges for orthodox believers. Whatever we call the religious outlook—secularism, post-secularism, post-Christianity, or something else entirely (I like the term “Protestant paganism”)—people are still skeptical toward Christianity, and in some cases downright hostile. The old gods are still here, in varying levels of disguise: Mammon, Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Gaia and Dionysus in particular. Renouncing them all to follow Christ is still costly. It is still harder for a rich person to enter the kingdom than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle. The church still has many flaws, and the cultural influence of Christianity has made those flaws even more unattractive to everybody else.

So how does the Western church not merely survive, but thrive, in this particular moment in history? How do we reach post-Christians: the nones, the dones, the not-yet-wons, our daughters and sons? Some of the answers, of course—prayer, evangelism, discipleship, hospitality, service, the power of the Spirit—are the same as they have always been. But others might require theological, historical and cultural reflection: on how and why we got here, what challenges and opportunities are before us, and how we might respond to them.

So, from 2-4 July 2024, we are going to spend some time thinking about all this. I am delighted to announce that we will be joined by the outstanding duo of Rebecca McLaughlin (author of Confronting ChristianityThe Secular Creed, and several other excellent books) and Rachel Gilson (author of Born Again This Way) to help us. The conference will be hosted by Andrew Wilson (King's Church, London) and will include plenary sessions, breakout discussions, meals together, and time for Q&A.

The cost of THINK 2023 is £150 per person, which includes tea, coffee, and meals together at lunchtime and in the evenings but does not include breakfast or overnight accommodation in London. We will begin at 3:30pm on the Tuesday, and finish with lunch on the Thursday, at King's Church London King's Church London, 21 Meadowcourt Road, London, SE3 9DU.

Come. Take time. Be refreshed. Think.
