Marriage Preparation Course

The Marriage Preparation Course is for any engaged couple who want to develop strong foundations for a lasting marriage. Over five evenings spent together you will learn important tools that will enable you to make your marriage work well.

About the Course

The Marriage Preparation Course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, co-authors of The Marriage Book and The Parenting Book. They have been married for over thirty years, have four children and are on the staff at Holy Trinity Brompton – the London church that started the Alpha Course. They started The Marriage Preparation Course in 1985 and The Marriage Course in 1996, and the courses continue to spread with thousands of courses now running worldwide.

What’s involved

The course takes place over six evenings. A typical evening starts at 7:30pm and finishes by 9.30pm. Each evening includes:

  • Talk and discussion – each evening a DVD of the talk is played. The talk is broken up with opportunities for you and your fiancé to talk through the issues.
  • Homework – at the end of each session you are given some homework to do together. This will help you to build on what you have learnt and give you the opportunity to apply it to your relationship. Don’t worry – it won’t be marked! It isn’t looked at by anyone else and is just for your own benefit.
