3 Seminars - Wednesday 8th, 15th & 22nd May @ 7:30pm.
Our Marriage team run a Marriage Course that has been developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, co-authors of The Marriage Book and The Parenting Book. They have been married for over thirty years, have four children and are on the staff at Holy Trinity Brompton - the London church that started the Alpha course.
The talks are presented on DVD featuring Nicky and Sila.
There will be coffee and private discussion time as a couple. You will be given topics to discuss (sometimes with the help of an exercise). Music is played so you can’t hear couples on other tables and they can’t hear you!
There is no group work, so relax - you won’t have to share anything about your relationship with anyone else.
For the following perhaps you could put a column at the right hand side of page 1 and put the titles as a list in the column with links from each one to the relevant page.
The Marriage Course is for any couple, whether you have been together for one year or 61 years and whether you feel you have a strong relationship or are struggling. If you have a strong marriage this course will help you make it even better and will reinforce your good habits. If on the other hand your marriage is in difficulty, the course will help provide you with very practical tools to help you work through the issues.
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. Many couples who are not churchgoers have commented that the Christian content was presented in a way that did not make them uncomfortable at all.
There is a minimal fee to cover costs.
We had areas of conflict in our marriage…we were a couple of hotheads. The course gave us some really good tools and practical help mainly in the area of listening. We learnt how to listen to each other and just to reflect. We learnt to respond in a healthy way. Mark
It took our marriage to another level – another level of togetherness, another level of communication. And we started to laugh again. Eric & June
Some people wrongly think The Marriage Course is just for people who are in difficulty with their marriage. We have found the opposite – it’s about investing in it because it’s going well and you want it to stay that way. Ju & Chris
'We nearly didn't come... this year has been extremely hard... we came to a brick wall and didn't know how to get through it. It has totally changed things around. We are going to get our marriage blessed next and have a fresh start.'
'It was a fantastic atmosphere. Although we were amongst all these people I felt we were on a tropical island just the two of us. It was a great feeling just to spend time together.'An invitiation from Calvary
