The Marriage Course – 7 great evenings out!

Marriage CourseLast autumn 14 couples signed up for the Marriage Course at Riverside House – the fifth one we have held.

It’s a great course, rooted in Christian principles, for couples who want to invest in their relationship, however long they have been together, and whether they have a strong relationship or are struggling.

The course provides evenings out together with drinks, nibbles, coffee and the best cakes Riversiders can make! It gives couples space to relax and talk on their own about the presented topics – Building strong foundations; communication; resolving conflict; the power of forgiveness; the impact of family; good sex; and love in action.

Here is typical feedback from the couples, most of whom were not from Riverside, with some having no church links:

Gave us tools for communicating better with each other

The course is very practical It got us below superficialities

Taught us to put effort into our marriage – to work on our differences

Really enjoyed spending time together and discussing things

Enjoyed learning more about my partner

Liked the ambience and hospitality – a special night out

Enjoyed the refreshments – especially the cakes!
