Marriage Preparation Course

Marriage Preparation Course

We are running  a course here on 5 Tuesday evenings starting Tuesday 17thApril, roughly fortnightly (exact dates below).

This is the 4th time we’ve done this and previous couples have found it a great preparation for their wedding, and personal time to talk about the things that matter – it’s set up so each couple gets personal space after the input sessions.

We can accommodate up to 4 couples and have 2 already. You do not have to come to Ascension Church or indeed any Church! The course is Christian based in its values and each session ends with a moment from the Bible but many couples have found it helpful in the general subjects it covers.

Do contact us for an informal chat if you want either via the contact page of our web-site or direct to 01225 405354.

The exact dates are: 17th April, 1st May, 15th May, 22nd May, 5th June and we start at 7.30 pm running till about 9.30 pm.
