The Marriage Course

Who is it for?

Marriage Course

Couples who’ve been married for a little while – or for many years.  Couples who are living together are also welcome, and many have enjoyed the course.  It’s enjoyable and beneficial for couples who’s marriages are strong and happy.  It also helps and encourages those who are experiencing difficulties.  It is firmly based on Christian principles, but has proven to be very helpful to (and enjoyed by) people without Christian faith or church background.

What happens?

Every week the topic is introduced by the leaders and on the dvd.  After the talk the couples enjoy a choice of desserts & tea/coffee and spend a little while talking together and working on parts of their manuals.  Privacy is very important.  There is NO group discussion, and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner.
