Engaged Couples

Marriage Preparation Course

The ‘Marriage Preparation Course’ is a 5-week DVD-based course for engaged couples. A manual is included with this course. The courses are normally run in March/April and August/September each year. The cost is $120, which includes the cost of doing the ‘Prepare’ questionnaire.
