The Marriage Course

tmc_headerChrist Church has run the Marriage Course for several years now, and if you would be interested in being connected in future courses please email
Too many people think they should only do a marriage course when things are going wrong in their marriage. Often, that can be too late. Rather we see it as a ‘marriage MOT’ to check in and make sure things are tuned up nicely! Healthy marriages help form healthy communities. We want to help build healthy marriage and reverse the growing trend of marriage breakdown, both outside and inside the church.

What is The Marriage Course?

The Marriage Course was developed in 1996 by Nicky and Sila Lee (authors of The Marriage Book) for couples looking for practical support to strengthen their relationship.

Over seven sessions, the course will help you to:

  • Understand each other’s needs
  • Communicate more effectively
  • Grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflict
  • Recover from the ways you may have hurt each other
  • Recognise how your upbringing affects your relationship
  • Improve relationships with parents and in-laws
  • Develop greater sexual intimacy
  • Discover each other’s “love language” and much, much more…

Who is it for?

The Marriage Course is for couples who are in a married and seeking to strengthen their relationship. Some couples do the course to invest in their relationship, others need more urgent help. Either way, the course offers a lifetime of practical ideas and tools to help keep your relationship strong.
