© 2023 Anglican Marriage Encounter -
We believe your marriage is important and with the right tools and the right attitude we can help to make your marriage even more special than it already is.
That’s why we provide Marriage Encounter weekends as a safe place where you can explore your relationship and expand your vision of what your marriage can be.
The weekend is an opportunity to get away from the distractions of day-
The aim is to provide a relaxed atmosphere in which you can share and explore your feelings, your hopes and dreams, your fears and disappointments, and your joys. At the same time it’s about learning to improve your communication and deepen your relationship.
The weekend is full and structured with little free time. You are there to focus on you as a couple and your relationship in a peaceful environment.
You do not have to share personal details with anyone else; the weekend is just between the two of you to help you communicate effectively and honestly.
Our team of married couples, will present a series of talks, each focusing on a different aspect of married life.
As they speak frankly and honestly about their own experiences of marriage, you will be challenged to think about your own present and future relationship.
At the end of each talk you will be given time to reflect individually on what you have heard before meeting privately with your spouse to share your response. The aim is to provide a positive and thought provoking experience to enrich your married life.
The Marriage Encounter Weekend presents a Christian understanding of marriage based on the Bible, but the weekend is suitable for married couples of any faith, or none – all are welcome.
Others have gladly given so you can experience the weekend without having to worry about whether you can afford it.
Apart from the registration fee of £20 per couple, the weekend is free! It is offered
to you as a gift -
At the end you will be given the opportunity to help towards the cost of future weekends if you wish.
The Marriage Encounter weekend consists of a series of presentations each followed by a chance to reflect and talk to each other as a couple, not with others.
