Marriage Preparation at St Matthews Church

If you’re like most people you prepare and plan for many things in life: education, career, retirement and holidays. And most couples spend up to 250 hours planning their wedding, but very little time, if any, planning for married life. The Marriage Preparation Course can help you develop strong foundations for a lasting marriage.

There are many things you can do to begin building a lifelong, happy marriage. Investing in your relationship before you are married will reap rewards for many years to come.

Who is this course for?

  • Are you engaged or seriously considering marriage?
  • Do you want to have the best possible start to your marriage?

If you answered yes to these questions then The Marriage Preparation Course is for you.

The Marriage Preparation Course is for any engaged couple who wants to give their marriage the best possible start. It doesn't matter how long you have been engaged - some couples have set a wedding date, while others have not. Or if you have been living together and would like to explore the idea of getting married, or if one or both of you have been married before.

Whilst the course is based on Christian principles, it is designed for all couples with or without a church background. You do not need to be getting married in a church to come on the course

The course consists of 5 DVD sessions, which include excercises for the couple to work through together, and 1 or 2 face-to-face sessions with a support couple to discuss the results of an online questionnaire.
