We have a specially trained team of Facilitator couples who cover various subjects over the course of the weekends as well as sharing their experiences – both good & bad.
The aim for our weekends is to create an intimate space for couples so we generally accommodate between 5 and 10 couples.
You’re welcome to arrive anytime after 5pm on the Friday evening with our programme starting at 7pm. We aim to finish by 4pm on the Sunday.
You are not asked to share anything personal at any point of the weekend. We like to meet with couples individually during the weekend but you don’t have to share anything personal at this stage. There is also a group discussion at the end of the weekend but again what you share is up to you.
Whilst some non-Christians do attend our weekends, the contents are unashamedly God focused so your spouse would need to be sympathetic to this.
We understand that it’s difficult to leave small children at home but these weekends are important time spent just you as a couple so that you can truly focus on what God’s saying to you. We operate a no children policy to minimise disruption to other couples attending.
Our weekends are specifically designed for couples to be away from their home environments for the whole of the weekends. Occasionally by special request we can accommodate non-residential delegates.
To secure your place on our weekends you will need to pay the full amount at time of booking. However, we do try to accommodate special requests made in writing where possible. We also have a bursary fund to support couples attending our weekends.
We are passionate about supporting church leaders and creating protected space for them to look at God’s plan for their marriage. With this in mind unless you are solely responsible for running a church or national ministry, we would recommend you attend one of our general Time for Marriage weekends.
As a charitable organisation, we make no profit from our weekends and the majority of the weekend cost is passed onto the venue. Therefore, unfortunately we are unable to offer any refunds on cancellations. In special circumstances we may be able to transfer you to a different weekend (fees apply). Please see our terms and conditions for further information.
Apart from obviously being in a different location, the sessions you attend will still be the same, but we’ve condensed the programme into two days (Saturday & Sunday). The added bonus of the online weekend are the pre & post consultations with our Facilitator couples, whilst the bonus of a residential weekend is time away from home with all meals provided and time with our facilitator couples during the weekend.
