Marriage Preparation Course

If you’re like most people you prepare and plan for many things in life: education, career, retirement and holidays. And most couples spend up to 250 hours planning their wedding, but very little time, if any, planning for married life. There are many things you can do to begin building a lifelong, happy marriage. Investing in your relationship before you are married will reap rewards for many years to come.

Have you considered whether the Marriage Preparation Course might be for you? This is a fantastic for those engaged to be married or in a long term partnership.

Over 40% of marriages in the UK break down in some way and the best way to ensure a lasting relationship is to invest time in it. Through attending this course (designed by Nicky and Sila Lee of Holy Trinity Brompton) you will have a chance to learn key relational skills as well as become aware of your differences.

Topics include:

- Expressing feelings and learning to listen.

- The importance of commitment.

- Resolving conflict.

- Keeping love alive and developing a fulfilling sexual relationship.

- Talking about goals and values.

You will work solely with your partner at an intimate table for two with snacks and drinks provided.

At the end of the course there will be an opportunity to meet and be mentored by a married couple from the church. Together, you could pray and discuss areas in more depth should you wish to. This is entirely optional.
