Marriage Course

Why not invest in your marriage? A series of online meetings hosted by the Church of Ireland Marriage Council is taking place now over seven weeks. The course is designed to help couples build strong foundations, learn to communicate more effectively and resolve differences well. The course will run each Thursday evening – there’s no counselling, no airing of dirty linen in public, no group discussions, and to top it all it’s absolutely free. Hosted by Jonny & Alison Campbell-Smyth, we believe this online course will enrich everyone’s marriage whether you are married 1 year or 60 years.'
