Marriage Preparation Course


WHO IS IT FOR?

The Marriage Preparation Course is for any engaged couple planning to give their marriage the best possible start. The course is also for couples who would like to explore the idea of getting married.

The course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background. You do not need to be getting married in a church to come on the course.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

On The Marriage Preparation Course, you and your partner are hosted by a married couple and seated near a few other engaged couples. Each couple’s privacy is respected as there is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else. 

The course will be set in a fantastic atmosphere. You will be served with a candlelit meal, coffee or tea and dessert in a romantic setting while listening to practical talks that are informative and fun, either given live or played on DVD. There is never any group work and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner.

  • Learn the art of communication
  • Resolve conflict
  • Spend time together
  • Recognise the influence of your family background
  • Develop a good sexual relationship
