In Australia, we have found that couples are in need of deep relationships not only with one another, but also with a group of peers. It’s great to relax and have a real, honest discussion about relationships and how we can challenge each other to grow. Homebuilders is a marriage enrichment workshop series that is designed to do just that.
These groups are great for people wherever they are in their spiritual journey because people are hungry for real solutions to their problems. As a result of being involved in Homebuilders, we’ve seen couples resolve significant conflicts, learn to communicate well with each other and fall in love all over again. The best part is that they are easy to facilitate, full of good interactions and laughter plus the only homework is to have a date with your partner!
HomeBuilders are a series of relationship workshops designed for you and your mates. Each Homebuilder spends 6-7 sessions focusing in on a different relational topic. In each session, you have a real conversation with a few other couples as you talk about and learn some new principles. Between meetings, each couple is encouraged to have a date night where you and your partner walk through some extra material designed to help you dig into the practical details of how the topic applies to your relationship. Whether you’ve been married for years or are newly married, a new parent or seasoned parent, these workshops will help you discover timeless principles that you can apply to strengthen your relationship.
Different Homebuilder workshops are designed for couples with varying spiritual backgrounds. (Email us if you’d like more info on what is appropriate for different groups) We encourage you to invite couples from the community to your Homebuilders if you feel it is appropriate. They are generally positively received from those without a church background. Perhaps during the workshop, you can schedule a time to meet with the couple for tea in order to explain the principles on which Homebuilders is built.
