Guidance & Counselling
COURSE FOCUS AREAS
Through a number of discipleship courses, running a few times during the course of the year, we endeavour to bring healing and restoration between us and others, between us and ourselves and between us and God.
The type of storms that confront a marriage in our world today requires the supernatural touch of God for a marriage to be successful. It’s not a case whether the storms will come, because they will, but whether your marriage is adequately equipped to deal with the storms when they arrive. The institution of marriage in our society has been very much trivialized. Commitment has gone out of fashion and people are marrying and divorcing with the flimsiest excuses these days.
In this course, we will help couples to develop a strong foundation, thus developing marriages that help to restore value into the institution of marriage.
We would like to see that couples invest in their relationship for a lasting marriage. During these sessions, the course will help you learn to communicate well, understand and appreciate your differences, each person’s role and calling in marriage, building self-esteem etc. This course is for people that’s exploring marriage for the first time or have been married before. Everything in this course is based on Christian principles with a Biblical foundation. At the end of each session each couple is given some homework to do together. This will help them build on what they have learnt and give them the opportunity to apply it to their relationship. It is for the couple’s own benefit.
The Marriage Preparation Course is a series of twelve sessions (over six weeks, once a week for 2 hours) to help engaged couples or those exploring the possibility of marriage, build strong foundations for their future together.
Divorce recovery focuses on the different phases a person goes through, on the journey to heal a broken heart. Although a hard journey, everyone learns more about themselves during this time. Life after divorce is so much harder than expected and self-forgiveness is a vital part of it. It is a time of grieving and dealing with loss. This is a journey for each individual that Jesus has come to heal their broken hearts and set them free.
The Divorce Recovery course is a series of 8 sessions (over four weeks, once a week for 2 hours) to help divorcees / children of divorce with a fresh perspective and to give them tools how to start a new ‘normal’.
Soul Care is not as much a course as it is a discipleship journey dealing with the different relationships in your life and about becoming who you’re meant to be in Christ. It will focus on your identity in Christ as well as receiving healing for hurts you might have experienced in the past, in particular those that might be an obstacle to you walking in everything Jesus has for you.
