Marriage Health Check Seminar

Saturday 16 September | 11am
Password: twenty

Oscar Wilde once said, “The man who says his wife can’t take a joke, forgets that she took him.” There’s more to marriage, though, than the jokes, the wedding, and the witty banter. This seminar is designed for married couples who want a refresher on the foundations of a great marriage and who want an opportunity to go deeper into the practices of a lifelong marriage. There will be short talks on the biblical ideas of grace, covenant and forgiveness and plenty of time for discussion as couples. Our keynote speakers are Jeremy and Dawn Hobson. Jeremy trained as a medical doctor and in now a church pastor, Dawn lectures at City University on nursing practice and they are both longstanding members of the Saint James church family.  

Childcare will be available – please select the childcare option on the Eventbrite page and we will be in touch to confirm with you children registration details. 

Saturday 16 September | 12.30pm

A classic picnic lunch for all with barbecue provided by the Scouts and village fête games. If you are able to, please bring a side dish to share (savoury or dessert) to supplement the barbecue.

Saturday 16 September | 2.00pm
Password: twenty

Interested in the history of Saint James Clerkenwell and the surrounding area? Join us for a talk and walking tour with Nicholas Riddell, author of ‘A History of the Church of Saint James Clerkenwell’.

Spanning centuries of important change, get in-depth knowledge of Clerkenwell ranging from the 12th Century Nunnery to the fashionable and industrialised parish that keeps changing up to the present day. Starting in the church at 2pm, the talk will be followed by a walking tour around Clerkenwell and ends with tea and cake at a local café.

Saturday 17 September | 11:00am

A celebration service looking back at the past twenty years and looking forward to the next twenty. The JC reunion band will help us sing songs old and new. There will be lots of sharing happy memories with guest interviews, video clips and a Bible talk by Andrew Baughen.
