Whether you are an engaged couple wanting to get your marriage off to the best possible start, or a married couple wanting to invest in your relationship, the Focus on Marriage day can help you do just that. On 30th June, we’ll be running this fun, positive, and practical day at the King’s Church using the Prepare-Enrich inventory tool to guide us.
Prepare-Enrich is the world’s leading relationship inventory tool, used by over 4 million couples across the world with decades of evidence showing how helpful it can be for couples to invest in their marriage. Developed by Christian researchers at the University of Missouri, it gives specific, positive and confidential feedback on various aspects of your relationship.
This is how it works: Once you sign up for the day, an on-line questionnaire will be sent to eachof you for you to fill in beforehand. This will take around 40-45 minutes. It need to be completed before the day in order to be processed so as to allow as much time as possible during the day for exploring the results.
Then, on the Focus on Marriage day on 30th June, each couple will be given a report, based on the answers they provided in their questionnaire, which shows the strength and growth areas of their own relationship. During the day:
- You will gain a fuller understanding of the strengths within your relationship on which you can build and also any areas where growth is still needed.
- You will be guided through a number of exercises to help you focus on different aspects of your unique relationship.
- You will be helped to practise important communication and conflict resolution skills.
The cost of this day is £30 per couple, which covers the costs of analysis and scoring. Lunch and refreshments will also be provided.
Prepare-Enrich is a great tool for giving the two of you a chance to explore and talk through your relationship, and give it the time and investment it deserves. We’re confident that this will be a really interesting and informative day for you both, as well as being a great opportunity to spend time focusing on each other
“King’s Church Runners” is a social running group comprised mainly of members and friends of King’s Church High Wycombe. We have runners of all ages and abilities. We welcome visitors – be that for a one-of run if you are visiting the area or to join us on a more regular basis.
Depending on need, numbers and season we run a “Getting Started” group to introduce people to running that maybe have not run before, or that want to improve their general physical well-being. Being part of a small group like this can be quite inspiring and motivate all the group members. This group would be the equivalent of a “couch to 5km” program offered by many running clubs. We encourage people that attend this group to join the local Wycombe Rye Park Run which is held on The Rye near the Lido close to High Wycombe each saturday.
INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED
Year-round we have an intermediate to advanced group of runners which meet at 7.30am on Saturdays, and most public/bank holidays, to do a run of between 10km and 16km on roads and on footpaths in the countryside around the High Wycombe area. Members of this group need to be able to run a flat 10km course in approximately 1 hour. The faster members of the group tend to double back occasionally to pick up the slower members of the group so that we all finish at approximately the same time. The group normally socialises in a local coffee shop after the run.
Sign-up to be contacted about this weeks’ runs. Or call the church office on 01494 459901.
MODERN SLAVERY AWARENESS TRAINING
WHAT IS MODERN-DAY SLAVERY AND HOW YOU CAN HELP
Tuesday, 20 February, 8-9:30pm at Town Centre site
(doors open and hot drinks served from 7:30pm)
Space is limited, so BOOK FREE TICKETS HERE as soon as possible.
There are believed to be tens of thousands of men and women in slavery in the UK and they may be closer than you think: at the car wash, nail bar, down your road, laying a new drive for you, working in a care home, local factory or restaurant. We can make a difference to their lives by reporting our suspicions to the Modern Slavery helpline
This slavery awareness session will be covering:
What is modern day slavery and the types
How do you recognise the signs that someone has been trafficked
What do you do when you recognise the signs.
Using case studies, videos and interactive exercises you will be more equipped to help stamp out modern day slavery. This session is not just relevant to front-line professionals but to everyone.
We love brunch and we think students do too.
Hangover Brunch is a space for any and all students to come, spend time with friends, relax and have brunch completely free. We serve things like waffles with toppings, bacon rolls, and fruit, yoghurt and granola for the healthy ones amongst you.
Have brunch on us on the second Saturday of each month. Bring your friends.
