Cocktails for Couples

In October we will be hosting a series of Monday evening dates designed to draw you and your partner closer together. Each evening will include some content from the front, guest interviews and private discussion in couples all with the aim of strengthening your relationship. All couples in a long-term, committed relationship are welcome – dating, engaged, married etc. A cocktail and dinner will be served.


Monday 8 October: Moving Towards …stronger connection

“36 Questions to Fall in Love” – with Steve and Mandy Marshall-Taylor

How do we determine to move from co-existence to connection? How can we intentionally make decisions that draw us closer together? We will spend the evening considering how we can move towards each other as we ‘create moments’ together and grow in the art of questioning.


Monday 15 October: Moving Towards… deeper understanding

“Falling Out without Walking Out” – with Tim and Hils Grew

We know we don’t always see eye-to-eye but how can we fall out, make up, resolve conflict and forgive – repeatedly, throughout our relationship? Tim and Hils will walk us through how to disagree well, understand each other better and how to move back towards each other after the distance of a disagreement.


Monday 29 October: Moving Towards… greater intimacy

“Embracing vulnerability” - with Nicky and Sila Lee

One of the keys to a successful relationship is one we often try to avoid: vulnerability. This is not learning to be weak or submissive but rather growing in the courage to be our true selves, risking opening up to our partner so that we can move towards greater emotional and physical intimacy. When we both choose this path, we are heading in the right direction!
