The first Harrogate Online Marriage Course started in June 2021. Following lockdown, leaders felt a need to offer a space for couples to explore some themes of marriage, invest and strengthen their relationship. Resources were provided by themarriagecourses.org.
Five churches from our town worked together to offer the free marriage course for 25 couples.
WHAT DID THE MARRIAGE COURSE COVER?
Topics covered include:
• Building Strong Foundations
• The Art of Communication
• Resolving Conflict
• The Power of Forgiveness
• The Impact of Family
• Good Sex
• Love in Action
‘We nearly didn’t come… this year has been extremely hard… we came to a brick wall and didn’t know how to get through it. It has totally changed things around. We are going to get our marriage blessed next and have a fresh start.’
‘It was a fantastic atmosphere. Although we were amongst all these people I felt we were on a tropical island just the two of us. It was a great feeling just to spend time together.’
