1,000 people sign up for Marriage Week’s main event
Marriage Week's main event sells out as 1000 people sign up to hear why church is best placed to support marriage.
Talk Marriage, the main event of Marriage Week 2012, will propose why marriage is vital for families and society, encourage couples to build lasting relationships and tackle the myth that cohabitation is as good as marriage.
The event will be hosted by Steve Clifford, general director of the Evangelical Alliance. He will be joined by Les Isaac of Street Pastors, Edmund Adamus, Marriage and Family Life Coordinator of the Diocese of Westminster, and Harry Benson of Bristol Family Trust whose academic research has contributed to the Centre for Social Justice's report on family breakdown.
Steve Clifford says: "One thousand people signing up just shows how keen people are to see their church take centre stage in promoting marriages as vital to a healthy society."
Tuesday 7 February 6 - 8:30pm at Emmanuel Centre, 9-23 MARSHAM STREET, LONDON SW1P 3DW
