Marriage and Family Life Project arranges a weekend course for engaged couples each year in Hallam. The weekend is delivered by trained volunteer couples from the Marriage Encounter movement. Ten couples (seven from Hallam) attended the course which took place in November at the Hallam Pastoral Centre.
Charles and Jane Perryman recently retired from Marriage Care.
Charles was a counsellor for twenty-nine years and trained counsellors for eighteen years. He was Chair of Marriage Care for five years.
Jane was a counsellor for sixteen years and trained counsellors for ten years. Jane managed the Sheffield Marriage Care office at St Wilfrid’s Centre for twenty five years. She was also employed as a development officer for Marriage Care for nine years.
The huge contribution they have voluntarily given to this ministry was celebrated at a lunch given by Marriage Care. Mark Molden, Director of Marriage Care, presented them with certificates and a gift expressing appreciation and gratitude.
