The Marriage course at Petone Baptist: Coming Term 2

The  aim of the Marriage Course is  to help couples grow closer and to build a healthy relationship that will last a lifetime. It is for any couple who wants to invest in their relationship, whether you have been together for 1 or 61 years.

The 2015 course will run on Friday evenings in Term 2, starting on April 24.


Parenting Courses at Petone Baptist

The Parenting Children Course is for those parenting children 0-10 years and the Parenting Teenagers Course is for those parenting 11-18 year-olds. These courses are for parents, step-parents or carers of children.

Both courses include a time to connect with other parents over supper/dessert, practical talks and small groups based on the age of your oldest child so you can talk to others at a similar stage to you.

We’ll be running these courses at the same time over five Friday evenings from 7.00-9.30pm starting on 27 February.

The cost is $25 per person which includes supper and all course materials.

Please contact the church office if you would like further information or to book a place.
