The Marriage Course

What is it?

The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage.  It was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee who are co-authors of 'The Marriage Book'. They started the course is 1996 and there are now thousands of courses running around the world.

Who is it for?

If you are a couple who is married or in a long-term cohabiting relationship, has been together for over a year and would like to make your relationship the best it can be, this course is for you. Whatever your situation, the practical tools you learn will help improve and strengthen your relationship.

While The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles, it is designed for couples with or without a Christian faith.

What can I expect?

The evening will start with a romantic meal for two giving you space to relax and chat. You will be served at a candle lit table, making it feel just like a date night. There will be practical talks that are informative and fun and time to discuss the talks privately with your partner. There is no group work, so relax - you will not have to share anything about your relationship with anyone else.

Topics covered include:

  • Building Strong Foundations
  • The Art of Communication
  • Resolving Conflict
  • The Power of Forgiveness
  • The Impact of Family - Past and Present
  • Good Sex
  • Love in Action

When is it?

The next course starts on Monday 19 September 2016 and runs each Monday evening until 7 November (term break on Monday 24 October). The course starts at 7:15pm with a meal and ends by 9:30pm.

What is the cost?

The course costs £85 per couple which covers the cost of the meals for the seven evenings of the course plus the course manual. There will be a small additional cost for the Marriage Course Party. Bursaries are available so please don't let cost deter you from joining us.
