Marriage Course in Templebreedy Parish -A strong, loving and lifelong relationship doesn’t happen by chance—and we can all learn how to make even the happiest relationship better. The Marriage Course. suits couples who have been married a little while or many years—or who are living together, or preparing to get married. The seven session course is set in a lovely atmosphere, with dinner at candlelit tables for two while you listen to practical talks that are informative and fun played on DVD. It’s more like a date than a ‘course’!!! There is never any group work and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner. For further information please contact Rev. Isobel Jackson (Rector of Templebreedy) at 4831236/087-7435424.
