Screenagers

Screenagers

Watching your kids scroll through life with their rapid-fire thumbs and a six-second attention span?

We are hosting a London showing of the film Screenagers by film maker and mother, Delaney Ruston. The film is a brilliant insight into the digital age for parents with children over 10 years old who are trying to work out what’s okay and not okay when it comes to screens, laptops and social media. After the film we will have the chance to ask follow up questions from a panel of teachers, parents and mental health specialists.

The film is a great conversation starter for families and parents are welcome to bring any child over 10 years old along too! (Then at least they can find out why all their screen time is suddenly cut!)

Marriage Preparation
Apr

to May 7

Marriage Preparation

All couples spend large amounts of time during their engagement preparing for their big day. Preparing for your wedding day is obviously important (and hopefully fun). Preparing for the rest of your married life is important too!  Decades of research have been done on how couples can ensure that they enjoy a long-lasting mutually fulfilling marriage.

The marriage preparation course we run draws on other people’s expertise and seeks to help individual couples prepare in the best way possible for their life ahead. Each evening we give couples the chance to explore key areas of their relationship with the aim of helping them prepare emotionally and relationally for a wonderful life together.

We have run Marriage Preparation Courses for a number of years and have helped at least 300 couples through them.  The course is open to anyone considering marriage, engaged or within the first year of married life.

The next course will be on Saturday 26th October, 9.30 am- 5 pm at St Marys church. It will cost £20 per person to help cover our running costs.

Parenting Evening: Coping with our Children's Mental Health

Who claimed that adolescence is just a phase?

Who suggested that being a parent is easy?

Looking to understand how young people think, why adolescence is an especially vulnerable time and about common issues which can arise when the going gets tough… anxiety, depression, stress, self-harm and adolescent development.

Join Connected Lives and Dick Moore to discover how

Dick Moore is a passionate speaker and has a wealth of information to impart. He has spoken at over 300 schools, universities, businesses and conferences both in the UK and abroad and we look forward to hearing his wisdom.
