About the Marriage, Pre-Marriage & Parenting Courses

We are by the Church, for the Church and through the Church

The Marriage Course has been run in over 127 countries for over 1 million couples and consists of two courses: The Marriage Course and The Pre-Marriage Course. 

The Marriage Courses The Pre-Marriage Course and The Parenting Courses act as a bridge between the church and the local community by recognising the need to go beyond the social, as well as physical, walls of the church to help couples with their relationships. The Marriage Course is designed to be easy for churches to run; with episodes that are available to buy and download online, along with training, guides, and journals. The sessions are completely private, with no group work.
