The Marriage Preparation Course is designed for couples considering marriage and wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. While based on Christian principles, it is relevant and helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background. The course begins with supper, followed by a talk and an opportunity for discussion. Privacy is respected, there is no group discussion or group work, and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship, but couples can discuss issues with a married 'support couple' if they wish.
Nicky and Sila Lee have been married for over 30 years and speak regularly on relationships and marriage preparation. They are co-authors of 'The Marriage Book'.
Topics covered include:
• Resolving conflict
• Keeping love alive
• Shared values
The last session of the course will start one hour prior to the usual start time for the Marriage Prep Happy Hour with bubbly and snacks provided for your small groups. We have found that this is a lovely way to celebrate the end of the course, and we would love it if you could join us for this social hour.
We also ask you to complete a questionnaire called the CoupleSurvey. The CoupleSurvey is completed on-line. The questionnaire will help you recognise issues to discuss as a couple prior to marriage. Since training is required to interpret the results, we will not pass the results to you directly. Instead, you can meet with your support couple over dinner to discuss any issues.
* We will email you details of the questionnaire and a link to the website around two weeks before the start of the course.
Please also note that due to the large number of engaged couples who register onto this course we cannot guarantee that everyone will be able to have a Support Couple that can attend the actual course or take each engaged couple through their questionnaire. If your church has a couple who are trained CoupleSurvey facilitators, they will be your support couple for the course.
The course will conclude with a party night on 17 March - please invite your friends along for a taster of The Marriage Preparation, and The Marriage Courses! (Suggested donation: £5 per person)
