At All Saints and St Lawrence, we value Christian Marriage and consider it a privilege and responsibility to help you to plan ahead. We strongly encourage you to attend a Marriage Preparation Day – preferably before your wedding day, although if necessary, even after the day is not too late.
Each year, the Marriage Preparation Day takes place on the first Saturday in March.
Most couples spend up to 250 hours planning their wedding, but very little time, if any, planning for married life. There are many things you can do to begin building a lifelong, happy marriage. Investing in your relationship before you are married will reap rewards for many years to come. We would like to help you to do this by inviting you on a DATE!
During the day there will be opportunities to discuss such topics as communication, family life, expectations, finances etc. You will be encouraged as a couple to think and chat about what this all means. It’s between you two, so don’t worry, there is no obligation to share in the group sessions. We don’t talk about the wedding ceremony – we leave that to your meeting with the Rector. This day is about one thing: YOU! The materials we are using have been used across the country.
