"How can we be happily married to the same person for a lifetime?"

"How do engaged couples put down good foundations for marriage?"

These and many more questions are answered by two courses that we run on a regular basis - The Marriage Course and The Marriage Preparation Course. Our aim is to provide practical, relevant help to couples and individuals in different areas of family life and relationships.

What is it?

The Marriage Preparation Course is a series of five sessions to help engaged couples or those exploring the possibility of marriage, to build strong foundations for their future together. It is written by Nicky and Sila Lee, who have been married for over 30 years and speak regularly on relationships and marriage preparation. They are co-authors of The Marriage Book.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for any engaged couple wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. While based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any engaged couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.

What can I expect?

Each evening begins with supper and is followed by a talk and an opportunity for discussion privately as a couple. Topics covered include:

  • Communication
  • Commitment
  • Resolving conflict
  • Keeping love alive
  • Shared values

We ask you to complete an online questionnaire called the Couple Survey around two weeks before the start of the course (we will email you the details and a link to the website). The questionnaire will help you recognise any issues to discuss as a couple prior to marriage. Each couple is allocated a married ‘support couple’ who will be available to discuss any issues raised.

WHEN IS IT?

The next course starts on 27th September 2017.  The course starts at 7:15pm with a meal and ends by 9:45pm.

What is the cost?

The cost of the course is £70 per couple, which covers a meal each night, course materials and survey analysis. Bursaries are available, so please contact us and we will be pleased to discuss this option.
