About the marriage course

What does Building a Safe & Strong Marriage look like?

In this marriage course, there are five sessions each lasting about two hours.  During the sessions you’ll watch some video content from us, Keith and Sarah, hear from couples who have also taken the course, watch interviews with couples with a range of experiences and pause for reflection and thoughtful exercises to do as a couple or on your own.

What do you cover in the marriage course?

We look at God’s design for marriage – what does the Bible say about marriage; research on what makes a marriage work; what damages our connectedness in marriage – the problem of shame, hiding and blame; and the warning signs that a marriage is in trouble.

“little things every day”

We then help couples with building the positives.  We have a saying “little things every day” and we explore how couples can work on their friendship, how they communicate, their sexual relationship and finally we look at the spiritual dimension they share. Finally, we provide couples with some tools in managing conflict gently.
