Love After Marriage

We are currently running the Love After Marriage workshop ( with 11 couples and have a desire to make it available to others in the near future. Love After Marriage (LAM) is a marriage course like no other, which we ourselves have had the privilege of doing. LAM was birthed as a result of a dream The Lord put on the hearts of Barry & Lori Byrnes who are part of Bethel Church, Redding California. The course is not so much pastoral in nature, but rather apostolic meaning that it is about creating a culture where marriages thrive. We believe God is wanting for there to be a revival of relationships meaning relationships, including marriages, which reflect Heaven's heart and model for them.

The strap line for LAM is 'Nothing Hidden' and this reflects the heart and vision of the course to be a place where couples are vulnerable with each other and vulnerable with others. Along with such vulnerability comes expectations of trust and confidentiality within the context of LAM. The choice to be vulnerable is down to individuals, but there is an expectation that those applying for and participating in LAM have a core desire to live vulnerably. It is not necessarily about bringing up every issue in your marriage, but more importantly about being led by Holy Spirit as to what to address. Our own experience is that the more vulnerable we have been the greater breakthrough and freedom we have got in our marriage!

LAM1 is an 18 session course, which is quite a commitment, but it is meant to be. Many of us make the time to commit to other things and yet our marriages are the most important relationships we have with another person, but so often we don't take the time to commit to working on and developing this vital relationship or we only make the commitment and take the time when we've hit a crisis!

Our desire is that this course will help us to have marriages that are healthy and flourishing in an ongoing way. We believe that it will cause husbands and wives to grow closer as well as relationships within Immanuel Community to go deeper too as couples journey with and support one another.

Our own experience has been that LAM is not just for young couples or newly-weds and in fact most of the couples that were on our course had been married for 30+ years!

"...been together 9 years & after 1 of these sessions know my beautiful wife better than I ever have..." (quote from a husband)

If you would be interested in participating in a LAM workshop in the future please contact us and we will keep you informed of future dates.

We have been learning a lot about perseverance this year!!  In all that is going on around us, to keep focused on Jesus and allow Him to be our strength and our peace.  It has been a journey that has been very humbling and leaning more into God and trusting Him.

It was a sad day.... Mark was welding on the roof of a YWAM bus and a spark caught alight the interior and the bus went up in flames in seconds!

Taking Every Thought Captive

Monday 13th October 2014

Recently I've been having waves of fear and anxiety attacks that have been lasting for days on end.

I find myself thinking "I don't want to feel like this but I can't seem to shake these thoughts and feelings."
I mean seriously who wants to live a life full of crippling fear and anxiety? Not me!

You can listen to Matthew's testimony here too...
