How connected do you feel? Do you feel connected at work, in church, within your family?
Where do you FIT? Should we be placed into a category or can we just do life together?
What can we learn from each other? Can a married couple mentor a single person in preparation for their future? Can a single parented child come along with you and your children on that trip to the beach or the park?
So, are you Married? Single? Engaged? Divorced? Widowed? A Single parent? Or in a blended family?
The 1-2-3 conference will explore how we can break out of these categories and begin to do life together. Whether it’s a meal, mentoring or moments shared let’s welcome each other in and ask, ‘How can I serve you?’
The Bible says, ‘Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves but a cord of three strands is not easily broken.’
We are not created to live life in isolation, so let us join together on Saturday 19th August from 12 midday to 10pm to learn more about living life together.
There will be informative teaching sessions and delicious food served throughout the day followed by a stunning reception and dancing into the night!
All adults are welcome but spaces are limited so please book early.
