What is The Marriage Course?

The Marriage Course and The Pre-Marriage Course act as a bridge between the church and the local community by recognising the need to go beyond the social, as well as physical, walls of the church to help couples with their relationships. The Marriage Course is designed to be easy for churches to run; with episodes that are available to download online for free, along with training, guides, and journals. The sessions are completely private, with no group work.

What does a Marriage Course Session look like?


Each session begins with couples eating together. This gives guests a chance to unwind and connect before the session’s episode. It also helps to create the atmosphere of a date.


The episodes are around 45 minutes in length, with breaks for conversations. Each episode explores a different topic through real experiences, expert insights and relevant teaching.

Providing space for couples to have private, intimate conversations is a must for every course. It helps enable couples to engage openly and honestly throughout the session.

‘Long-term initiatives like The Marriage Course, devised by HTB Church, are a much better use of the church’s time, money and effort…

It’s an eight-week course that covers everything from ‘The Art of Communication’ to ‘Good Sex’ delivered in a non-preachy way, which can be accessed equally by people of faith and none.’ ***view original article***

The Daily Telegraph

The Times

I have seen how The Marriage Course is a beautiful ecumenical resource that helps couples invest afresh in their marriage in a real and practical way for the challenges of modern life.’

Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Council for the Family

‘The Marriage Course helped me tremendously, moving me away from trying to fix my wife, to listening to her.’

Dan (Guest on The Marriage Course)

‘What is amazing is the loving, caring space that’s created; we didn’t feel judged for not being married. That is the contemporary nature of what you are doing there, allowing people to access the church.’

Jessie (Guest on The Marriage Course)

99% of guests said the course had a positive impact on their relationship.

73% of guests experienced significant improvement in their relationship from the course.
