The Marriage Course is a series of seven sessions, designed to help couples invest in their relationship and build a strong marriage.

Nicky and Sila Lee, authors of The Marriage Book, developed The Marriage Course for couples looking for practical support to strengthen their relationship. The course is designed to help couples build strong foundations, learn to communicate more effectively and resolve differences well.

Who is it for?

The Marriage Course is for couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationship. Some couples do the course to intentionally invest in their relationship, others are looking to address more specific challenges. Either way, the course offers essential tools and practical ideas to help you build a relationship that lasts a lifetime. 

The Marriage Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background. If you are engaged, then we recommend to you the Marriage Preparation Course.

What can we expect?

On The Marriage Course you are seated at your own table for two. Each course is unique, but usually every session will include: food, a practical talk and a time for private discussion between you and your partner. 

You never share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner. Background music ensures that you can chat in complete privacy.


We will be running our next Marriage Course in the Summer Term, 2020.
