St Mark’s is known for being a place for weddings. We’ve always been clear that our priority is promoting healthy relationships and preparing couples for marriage, rather than just their wedding day. Reflecting this commitment, we also offer Marriage Enrichment courses, because we know that good marriages take work and good communication.

If you are married, or in a serious relationship, we recommend you attend the Marriage Course. Think of the course as a date night opportunity which will help you to enhance your marriage in a relaxing setting.

The Marriage Course is designed for any married couple or cohabiting couple wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. The course offers essential tools and practical ideas and is an important way of investing in your relationship.

This respected course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee who are co-authors of The Marriage Book and have been married for over 40 years. The course is designed to help couples build strong foundations, learn to communicate more effectively and resolve differences well. While based on Christian principles, the course is helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.

During the Marriage Course you are seated at your own table as a couple. Every course is unique, but usually sessions will include food, a practical talk and a time for private discussion between you and your partner. Your couple privacy is respected as there is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about your relationship to anyone else.

Topics covered include:

Building strong foundations

The art of communications

Resolving conflict

The power of forgiveness

The impact of family – past and present

Good sex

Love in action
