There is often a heavy toll on marriages and families after natural disasters like the bushfires.

This trauma combined with the stresses, isolation, and unpredictability of COVID-19 restrictions has put increased pressure on many families on our island.

As part of their bushfire response, KI Anglicans have donated to various groups including recently putting $10,000 towards air conditioners for shipping container pods. They also want to bless families and marriages to help enrich and stabilise our community.

For this reason KI Anglican minister, Brad Henley will be making his way around to various families in bushfire affected areas to deliver a marriage course DVD and meal vouchers.

The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage. It is a very well made, well researched, fun program for enriching your relationship.

Over 1.7 million people have taken the course in 127 countries and 45 languages. The Guardian said, "There's no counselling, no airing of dirty linen in public, no group therapy - and it seems to work."

If you also would like the Marriage Course, please contact brad.henley@gmail.com. You don't have to be Anglican to be part of it.

The grass is greener where you water it. Consider taking up this course as a way of watering the grass at home, boosting your family life, your sex life and the peace of your home.
