We thoroughly enjoyed our Step One weekend at Cratfield from 10th – 12th June. It’s the first course we’ve been able to run since February 2020 and it was lovely to welcome visitors from as far afield as Bristol, Derbyshire, Warwickshire and Essex, as well as those who live more locally.
A group of approximately 20 gathered to learn why it is so important to understand ourselves, to discover the richness of our individual temperaments, how those temperaments interact within us and how that understanding can enrich our relationships. We explored how our identity is formed and how our past experiences have helped to shape who we are today. As the testimonials below show, the weekend provided a safe and welcoming environment to embark upon the journey of understanding ourselves and others.
We enjoyed the lovely premises at School Farm Cottages and appreciated being able to relax in the June sunshine between sessions. We took the opportunity to walk in the beautiful Suffolk countryside on the Saturday afternoon and enjoyed farmhouse lunches and a relaxing pub meal on the Saturday evening, which provided the opportunity to chat and explore the teaching in more detail.
“Delving into each temperament in detail was really helpful - and having relaxing/ conversation time with everyone afterwards was great to get to know new people more and have relaxed further discussion about content.”
Which part of the course did you find most enjoyable? “All of it! Really blessed when Merle shared about being a Melancholic.”
Would you recommend the course to friends/colleagues? “Absolutely. Feels like essential knowledge!”
“You live out God’s love so well, thank you for making us feel so welcome. What a blessing to do this course at the start of married life. Thank you!”
“I enjoyed all of it, but the interaction covering different people’s temperaments was very good.”
“I have enjoyed the teaching the course delivered, the hospitality and the love shown throughout the course. I did value enormously the participation of others who had already completed the course. Their experiences were really valuable.”
