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: recognizing each other's needs, learning to communicate effectively, resolving conflict, healing past hurt, 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. 

What's involved? 
Each evening begins with a meal shared with our Alpha guests. There is then a talk followed by an opportunity to discuss the topic together as a couple. The setting is welcoming, relaxed and nonthreatening. 

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, such as the birth of a child, a career change, teenagers at home, the "empty nest"
  • 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.
