Marriage Preparation

We run a Marriage Preparation Course to help couples lay the foundations for a relationship that will last a lifetime.

What will I learn?

During the course, you will discover practical tools to help you build the foundations for a lasting marriage. We look at:

  • the importance of commitment
  • the art of communication
  • resolving conflict
  • making each other feel loved
  • the importance of talking about your goals, values and dreams

The format is very relaxed, comprising of short talks interspersed with exercises and questions for you to discuss as a couple (and at no time in the course will you have to disclose anything personal to anyone else).

Who is the course for?

The course is based on Christian principles but is suitable for people with or without a church background. It is for any engaged couple who want to work at having the best possible start to their marriage.

We strongly recommend you make every effort to attend as those who have done so in the past have found it very beneficial.

When and where will the course be run?

The course is run by Rev. Mike Saunders once a year at the vicarage in Hungerford, usually in February, Saturday - and Sunday - . We can accommodate up to 12 people on the course.

How much does it cost?

It's free!
