In light of the situation with COVID-19, we are currently running Restored Lives online. The course will take place across 8 consecutive Monday evenings, exactly as though you were attending in person, except that you will be able to do so from the comfort of your own home! All you need to do is register for the course and we will be in touch regarding further instructions.
What to expect
Each evening begins with a talk, followed by opportunities for discussion in small groups. The small groups are led by people who have gone through divorce themselves. The setting is welcoming, relaxed and unthreatening.
Who is it for?
This course is for those who are separated, those who are currently going through a divorce, or those who are already divorced, whether recent or at any time in the past.
The course is run by a church and is based on Christian values but is not religious in content, it is for people of all faiths and none. It is both practical and supportive, giving any separated or divorced person the opportunity to discuss the challenges they are facing and the tools to deal with these effectively.
Topics covered include:
Facing the effects of separation and divorce
The importance of good communication
Forgiveness and letting go
Divorce – the legal issues
Moving forward with hope
“This is a very caring and professionally run course which will stand me in good stead in the future.”
The cost of the course includes materials, which will be posted to you. Bursaries available upon request to those from low income households or full time students. Please apply by email. Please note that cancellations and transfers are accepted up to 24 hours prior to the start of the course.

If you are seeing a therapist or taking medication prescribed by your doctor, please discuss your participation on this course with them. The material addresses the hard issues that arise on separation and divorce and may be challenging.
While many people find a group environment helpful and supportive, it may not be appropriate for everyone. If you have any concerns about this, please contact the course administrator.
