The Marriage Preparation Course is a series of four sessions to help engaged couples or those exploring the possibility of marriage, build strong foundations for their future together.

It is designed to help couples invest in their relationship for a lasting marriage. The course will help you to learn to communicate well, understand and appreciate your differences, and prepare for potential challenges. 


The Marriage Preparation Course is for couples who are exploring the idea of getting married and for those who are already engaged. It’s designed for those who want to give their marriage the best possible start, whether they’re exploring marriage for the first time or have been married before.

The course is based on Christian principles but 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 first session is on Tuesday 20th February at 7:30PM.

The course is being run in St Mary’s Church in conjunction with St James’ Church, Hampton Hill. Half of the sessions will be run by the vicar of St Mary’s, Ben and his wife, Cara and the other half run by the vicar of St James, Derek and his wife, Sandra.
