Marriage - a journey, not a destination
This is the name given to the current Accord marriage preparation course offered to couples.
We also have inter-church courses for couples of mixed faiths getting married in the Catholic church.

Combining distinct sets of expectations
A marriage preparation course is an opportunity for couples to take time out from the hectic planning of the wedding day, to focus on how things are between them, to affirm what is going well and to name the areas of their relationship that might need some attention.

Tailored courses
We also offer inter-church courses meant for couples of mixed faiths getting married in the Catholic Church. Tailored to your needs, each course is presented by a priest, another faith minister, and two facilitators. Let us know if you have specific queries.

We know that couples attending our pre-marriage courses are already on a journey. This is a journey of discovery which began the first time they met. It is a journey that combines two histories, two families and two distinct sets of expectations of marriage.
