Parenting Tools for all Seasons – A five-week course

Parenting is a gift but it can be challenging, confusing, chaotic & confidence-crushing… We’d love you to join us for this five-week course based on the Mothers Union course Families Equip: Parenting Tools for all Seasons. You will gain tools, information and an opportunity to reflect and consider together what might work for you as you parent your particular child or children. This is a chance to reflect, regroup and reboot… Invite a friend, family member or neighbour to come along… everyone is welcome.

“Great Course, very worth doing. Presents great practical strategies to implement with kids and helps with encouraging and growing parents to be prepared and improve relationships with their kids.” Previous course participant

      The Connect Series is a great opportunity to connect more deeply with The Lakes Church. We don’t usually get in our cars and drive somewhere without first knowing where we’re going, but when it comes to living our lives, we often bumble through without real answers to life’s most important questions.

      What is God’s purpose for my life? How do I live as a Christian? God’s Word provides the answers to these questions. In this series we investigate together how to live the lives God intends for us individually and as a church.

      Connect is a mix of talks, discussion, Bible reading, and question time – all with dinner thrown in! It is a great way to grow as a Christian in thinking about God’s plans for your life, as well as getting to know others from our church, what we’re all about at The Lakes, and how you might become more involved.

      This series is free and dinner is included | Sessions run for approximately two hours | Find us in the Function Room at the Ministry Centre.

      For registration or enquiries please fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch with you soon.

        Is there more to life?

        It’s easy to get bogged down in the mundane of life. Pulled in so many directions we can find ourselves overwhelmed with stress and anxiety. Every now and again we stop and wonder, is there more to life than this?

        Life is an interactive series that explores the evidence for Jesus and the Bible, and what it means for us. Come and ask all the questions you always wanted to ask. What is the ‘good life’? Can we trust the Bible? Who is Jesus? Participants are encouraged to ask as many questions as they like or just listen to the discussion. Whether you are still trying to work this out or you are already a follower of Jesus, everyone is welcome and it’s free!

        This series is free and will run for five weeks. For registration or enquiries please fill out the form below and we’ll be in touch with you soon.
