Marriage Preparation

In the Akeman Benefice we encourage couples planning to marry in one of our churches to attend our short marriage preparation course. Quite separate from planning for your wedding day, this takes a few hours over part of a weekend and offers practical suggestions and advice on strategies to build a firm foundation for marriage even for those who have lived together for years or been married before.

Based on an interactive DVD and allowing plenty of time for group discussion and conversation between each couple on their own, the course is run in a home where, with a meal and in a confidential and informal atmosphere, you can meet other couples preparing for married life, share experiences and pick up tips to help your future together.

If you would like to know more, please ask  Gareth Miller or Paul or Joanna Clifford in the first instance.
