The Marriage Preparation Course is for anyone who is married, engaged, or thinking about getting married in the future.

Wish marriage and relationships came with an instruction manual? The Marriage Preparation Course is a fantastic environment to explore questions about marriage and married life. We run two courses a year, during the spring and autumn terms and each course is spread over five sessions. The next course starts in March 2014 and covers the following topics:

02 Mar: Communication
09 Mar: Commitment
16 Mar: Resolving Conflict
23 Mar: Keeping Love Alive
30 Mar: Shared Goals and Values 

The course is open to couples at various stages of their relationship. Whether you are married already, engaged, or thinking of getting married, please feel free to join us. 

It is hosted by Ross and Joy Bull and takes place on Sunday afternoons at the Mermaid Theatre. The course costs £30 per couple, and you will receive a book on marriage, a workbook each, cakes and drinks each week, and a follow up session with a couple from the church.

Couples often ask if there are any books that will help them as they consider marriage, so click here to read a post by Ross and Joy, recommending a few books they have found to be helpful for strengthening marriages and relationships.

Transforming Ducketts Common

Sat Jul 26, 10.00 - 13.30

A group of people are partnering with local churches to help transform Ducketts Common into a safe and enjoyable space for families, by cultivating a wildflower meadow. If you would like to be involved, you are welcome to join us. Usually there is a variety of tasks to do, some of which involve gardening.

We meet at 10.00 to pray and then we work from 10.30 until 13.30. Wear clothes suitable for gardening. All tools are provided, no experience necessary.
