The Marriage Course is for couples looking for practical support to strengthen their relationship. Each couple’s privacy is respected and there is no group discussion, no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship to anyone else and the entire course is enjoyed privately by each couple in their own home. The course is open to both married and cohabiting couples.
The seven week Marriage Course Online is free (except for the cost of the participant’s Journal: £10 each) and begins on Tuesday 20 April, 2021 at 19.15 BST. Course bookings are now being taken here: https://jcceg.churchsuite.co.uk/groups/gbxwynvs
The pressure on marriages and relationships has, of course, been significant over the past year. In 2020, new research commissioned by the charity, Relate, uncovered the impact that lockdown measures are having on our relationships.
Relate’s research in 2020 found that almost a quarter of those surveyed (23%) said lockdown was putting pressure on their relationship with their partner. Of those living with their partner,12% agreed that staying at home made them doubt their relationship with more than a quarter (27%) of respondents saying they were finding their partner irritating.
Lockdown, of course, hasn’t simply been about spending much more time with your partner: many people have also experienced worries about job security, business failure and family finances. Other couples have been balancing work with home-schooling, childcare and mounting uncertainty about the future.
It is to respond to these pressures that Jubilee Community Church is offering the Course in April.
(Tuesday) 7:15 pm - 9:15 pm
