Join one of our online workshops
As an add on to our course, we run single-session workshops that explore specific challenges you might face when you get divorced or a relationship has ended.
There are some topics that can be particularly difficult when a relationship has broken down. In order to provide a broader forum for discussion, we have created some free online workshops that we run in addition to our online adult course three times a year.
-Exploring Divorce and Faith
-Men Only Sessions
-Separating From an Abusive Partner
They are a useful add on to the adult course but you can attend even if you haven’t done the course as a way to dip your toe in the water to see if Restored Lives could help you. Use the buttons below to register your interest or book a place.

Exploring Divorce and Faith
Particularly if your faith is an important part of your identity the end of a significant relationship or marriage can create a lot of questions and even a crisis of faith.
Do I still believe? Why did this happen to me? Am I being punished? Did this happen because I didn’t pray enough?
This session is an opportunity to explore these big questions in a safe and non-judgemental place, regardless of where you are in your faith journey.
We look at what the bible says about divorce and provide opportunities for respectful discussion about the issues.
We run these sessions three times a year and they are available whether or not you are attending or have attended the Restored Lives Course.
Men Only Sessions
Studies have shown that men are less likely to receive support when going through the breakup of a relationship. Culturally men are often expected to “man up” and deal with things alone. This session is an opportunity to specifically address the issues men face in a safe space where you can speak to other men in similar situations. In particular, we look at the topic of mental health.
We run these sessions three times a year and they are available whether or not you are attending or have attended the Restored Lives Course. (We are also exploring a regular men’s group that can provide ongoing support as you process your breakup.)
Separating from an Abusive Partner
If abuse of any kind has been part of your relationship, the end of that relationship will have different challenges. This session has been created in collaboration with the domestic abuse charity Restored to explore these challenges in greater depth.
We run these sessions three times a year and they are available whether or not you are attending or have attended the Restored Lives Course. We are also exploring regular support groups that can provide ongoing support as you process your breakup. Contact us if this is of interest. You can also download our free handout that provides information about lots of other resources that may help.
