The Marriage Course

Returning again soon is the popular Marriage Course.

The course runs over 8 sessions, starting 6th October 2016.  It runs over 8 sessions and is designed as a kind of ‘MOT’ for marriages to help strengthen foundations and build intimacy for couples who are already married. 

The course will be led by Chris and Julie Bradley with support from other couples who have done the Marriage Course before.

The content will be a combination of live input (from your hosts), teaching input using material produced by Nicky and Sila Lee from Holy Trinity Brompton Church, London (home of the Alpha course), with opportunity during the evening for reflection and discussion between husband and wife.

Each evening begins with a meal at 7.00pm followed by the session which finishes at 9.45pm.

The venue is the Coffee Shop at the Old School Rooms.

We’ll be making a charge of £60 per couple to cover the cost of materials and also the food for each week, but please do not be put off by the cost – we would rather have you than your money and any contribution (however small) will be acceptable and welcome.

If you are interested in registering or finding out more then please contact Julie Bradley or register your interest here.
