Marriage Course coming this autumn!  If you are married or engaged to be married, then the relationship you have with your spouse (or future spouse) is the second most important relationship that you will ever have.

We invite couples to join us for a series of talks on DVD followed by discussion questions, both for group work and in couples, and there will be some homework! The course is based very much in Biblical truth and is much more about principles rather than sessions on specific areas such as money, children, intimacy etc. The course will run over 5 weeks, starting on 11th September and you will need to enrol by 4th September (We will require couples to commit to completing the whole course).

Are you are willing to invest this time, energy and money into your marriage?  Where does it come in your list of priorities? However good a marriage you think you have, this course will help you to see ways in which it can be even better!

If you decide that this is not the time for you to take up this invitation, then please consider offering your services as a childminder for couples who would like to.

Please talk to Ross or Bertie to find out more.
