Coming up on 17th May:

Remaining Friends with John & Ruth McNeill

We hail from Northern Ireland and are the classic example of a cross-cultural marriage – city boy meets country girl and travel the world! We are happily married (for the most part) for almost 39 years. Blessed with 4 rock star daughters who have produced 5 Grand Things (so far). We have had various adventures around the world having the privilege of giving God the best part of our working lives as missionaries in Malawi, Namibia, Denmark and now in Birmingham. Our present jobs are – Ruth is the Chief Operating Officer for Agape UK and John is the Digital Strategy Director for Agape Europe.

I once was preaching at a friend’s wedding and I asked one of my daughters, “What is the advice you would give to the bride & groom?” Jem said, “Remain best friends”. It was another good example that our kids give us wise counsel. So how do you stay best friends with the person you say you love? Join us on 17th May to find out!

How it works
Couples Talk happens as a zoom webinar. This means you will join with no video and be already muted. BUT you will be able to interact fully via the chat box and there will be time for your questions to be answered. You’ll also receive our TAKEAWAYS …these are next steps to help you grow a stronger and thriving relationship together.


As this event is our gift to you Entry is FREE, although you will need to pre-register. If you are living in the same place as your partner, please register for 1 ticket and use the same device to connect to Zoom.
