Retrouvaille is designed to provide the tools to help get your marriage back on track. It will give you the opportunity to rediscover each other and examine your lives together in a new and positive way. This program has helped 10’s of 1000’s of couples experiencing marital difficulty at any stage.

Saturday Nov. 8th 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.: ‘How to Relax and Enjoy Evangelism’. Does your heart start to pound when you hear the words ‘witness’ or ‘evangelism’? Although we have experienced God’s presence, and Jesus has told us to share his good news with the world, we’re often shy or scared to talk about faith with people outside the church. Come join us, and learn why evangelism doesn’t have to be stressful. It’s time to stop living in fear.
Note: this is a diocesan workshop hosted by St. Margaret’s as part of the evangelism training program for all interested people in the Diocese of Edmonton. To register, please email assistant@edmonton.anglican.ca or call the synod office at 780-439-7344.
