The Marriage Course

The Marriage Course was developed by Nicky and Sila Lee, co-authors of The Marriage Book and The Parenting Book. They have been married for over thirty years, have four children and are on the staff at Holy Trinity Brompton – the London church that started the Alpha course. Please see for more information.

The Marriage Course talks are presented in one of two ways using a mixture of DVDs featuring Nicky and Sila from Holy Trinity Brompton and live talks. The talks are interspersed with filmed clips of couples talking about their experiences of marriage and street interviews from around the world. Over seven sessions of the course you will discover practical tools to help you:

  • understand each other’s needs
  • communicate more effectively
  • grow closer through resolving conflict
  • heal the ways you’ve hurt each other
  • recognise how your upbringing affects your relationship
  • improve relationships with parents and in-laws
  • develop greater sexual intimacy
  • discover each other’s love languages and much, much more!

The evenings are designed for any married couple wishing to build a strong and lasting relationship. Topics covered include:

  • Building Strong Foundations
  • The Art of Communication
  • Resolving Conflict
  • The Power of Forgiveness
  • The Impact of Family – Past and Present
  • Good Sex
  • Love in Action

Each couple’s privacy is respected as there is no group discussion and no requirement to disclose anything about their relationship to anyone else. The course, while based on Christian principles, is very helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.

Each evening includes a meal and one to one time for each couple in an intimate setting. The costs of the course will be around £60 for each couple, which covers the meal and course materials. However, cost should not be a barrier to anyone coming and support is available. Please ask.
