A loving marriage is a beautiful thing… but it takes hard work… and life is tough sometimes… which is why we’re encouraging you to enrich your marriage.

We will be using the excellent resources from Prepare/Enrich Australia – an organisation committed to building strong and healthy relationships. There are two ways that we will make use of their material:

1) Online survey and customised report

Prepare/Enrich have developed an extensive online survey which produces a customised couple’s report. The 10 page couple’s report includes the Core Relationship Categories and Couple Type, the Couple & Family Maps, the SCOPE Personality scales, and the Personal Stress Profile. More than 4,000,000 couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through this tool.

After you have registered, you will be sent an email with login details for the Prepare/Enrich online survey.

  • Login and pay

You can login for the Prepare/Enrich online survey using the details provided in the email. You will be asked to pay $42 by credit card or Paypal. This is a cost passed on directly from Prepare/Enrich.

  • Complete the survey

The survey begins with background information in order to provide customised results. You will then be asked a series of questions. It typically takes between 30-45 minutes to complete the survey. When both partners are finished with their survey, the report will be sent to us as qualified facilitators. We will then forward the couple’s report to you. Please bring the report to the marriage enrichment nights for explanation.

NOTE: Your partner should also login using the same login code and complete the survey separately.

2) Marriage Enrichment Nights

Prepare/Enrich have designed a series of enrichment exercises which complement the couple’s report. Based on the reports that we receive, we will choose the most appropriate and relevant exercises.

Over three marriage enrichment nights, we will take couples through the enrichment exercises. Whilst there may be many couples in attendance, couples will complete the exercises privately and will not be asked to share any personal information with others.

Dates: Wednesday 2nd, 9th, 16th August

The nights will also include:

  • Food and drink
  • Interviews
  • Short Bible talks on marriage

There will be no additional charge for these nights.

We believe the couple’s report and marriage enrichment nights will greatly benefit each couple. We also believe the material is accessible to all people, irrespective of individual faith, and so we encourage you to invite friends and family to attend.
