The ‘other halves’ of the preachers are invited to the gatherings too, as part of the gift. Some may only be able to come for the evening meal and Monday night, and then have to leave, after breakfast on the Tuesday morning.
For those able to attend the whole event, they would be welcome to participate with the other spouses in as much of the programme below as they would like. If they are preachers themselves they would be welcome to join in the main preachers programme.
After coffee, devotions and the opening sermon with the preachers, there would be a time for introductions and sharing among the spouses before lunch. After that, for the rest of the stay, there will be various options that they may like to join in.
