“How to build a healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime”

What is The Marriage Course?

The Marriage Course is very practical, giving any married couple the tools to build a strong and healthy marriage that lasts a lifetime.

Over seven evenings spent together couples talk about important issues that can get swept under the carpet in the rush of daily life.

Topics covered include: recognising each others needs, learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurts, knowing how to make each other feel loved, relating to parents and in-laws, good sex, making time for each other and having fun together.
Privacy as a couple is always respected. There is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

What’s involved?

Each evening begins with a video talk by Nicky and Sila Lee of Holy Trinity Brompton. There is then opportunity to discuss the topic together as a couple, with refreshments. The setting is welcoming, relaxed and un-threatening. Each week we will aim to finish by 10 pm.

Who is it for?

The Marriage Course is for any married couple who want to build a strong and lasting relationship, especially:

  • those who want to enhance their marriage;
  • those in the first five years of marriage;
  • those at a challenging stage in their marriage, e.g. the birth of a child, a career change, teenagers at home, the ’empty nest’; and
  • those struggling with issues in their marriage.

The course, while based on Christian principles, is very helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.
