Prepare Enrich

Prepare Enrich

24 October 2024
8:30am - 5:00pm
Sylvania Anglican

The aims of this Prepare/Enrich training course are two-fold:

  • To train and authorise the minister in the online Prepare/Enrich diagnostic tool integrating it into a gospel-centred Marriage Preparation Course for use with couples they prepare for marriage; and
  • To think through and suggest ways a Marriage Course could be used to reach out to the local community.

As Ministers and their spouses together often help people prepare for marriage, we encourage AMs to consider registering their wives to attend with them.

Please note – the course context & structure is unsuitable for babies and small children to attend.
