Marriage Preparation

Marriage Preparation Course

All couples planning to get married at one of the Otter Vale Mission Community churches are invited to one of our Marriage Preparation courses. Virtually all couples who’ve attended previous days have said how helpful they have been.

The day is an opportunity for you to spend quality time with your partner thinking about your marriage relationship, and especially the things that are important to you both in your particular situation.

Saturday 24th February 2018
Saturday 30th June 2018
