- Before U say “I do”
We’re so glad you’ve stopped by.
Since Tightknots began in 2005, we‘ve been driven by the belief that God has a strong desire for good marriages. A good marriage to us is one in which a couple are close, connected and secure in each other’s love, and our events and activities are designed to provide opportunities for couples to strengthen and enrich their marriages. Including our annual Couples Weekend Away, 3Fold Cord prayer meetings and 2Become1 premarital course, we hope to provide platforms for transformative and, where necessary, restorative experiences for couples on the journey towards, or already united in, the marriage experience.
The name Tightknots is a combination of two words…
* Tight – Firm. Snug (fitting very closely) Fixed (firmly secured or held). Taut (stretched so that there is no slack). Sealed (sealed against leaks). Secure. Close.
* Knot – Fastening of strands by looping and pulling tight. Bond. Join. Bind. Knit. Weave. Joint. Connection. Tie.
…and is derived from Ecclesiastes 4:12. A marriage which is made up of a husband and a wife under God, who are committed to His will for their lives and submitted to the dictates of His spirit, will withstand the tests of time and circumstances.
Whether your marital adventure is still years away from beginning, or you’ve been happily married to the spouse of your dreams for decades, the website contains resources that will make your journey that more rewarding.
Tightknots operates under the leadership and oversight of Agu and Sola Irukwu, senior pastors at Jesus House, a church in London and a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God. Pastors Agu and Sola are happily married and blessed with three children.
