Cornerstone is pleased to run the Marriage Course through an association with Holy Trinity Brompton (HTB) Church in London, where the course was originated by Nicky and Sila Lee.

For married couples only (there is a separate Marriage Preparation Course for engaged singles), the Marriage Course is designed to equip husbands and wives with the tools needed to build strong, healthy marriages that last a lifetime. Taking place over seven consecutive Sunday evenings, sessions start with a candle-lit meal before video teachings about issues that are often swept under the carpet in the rush of daily life. The teaching is broken up with short exercises that give couples the opportunity to discuss the topics in complete privacy - there is never any group discussion and no requirement to disclose details of your relationship to anyone else. While based on Christian principles, the Marriage Course is helpful for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.




By way of introduction, we are the Charnley's! We got married in South Africa in November 2001. We have been blessed with two boys, Caleb and Gabriel. We moved to the UAE in September 2013, which was the second international move for our family.


After getting married, moving abroad, having children, working, studying we started to realise how busy life can get. It can be a real challenge to find time to invest in your marriage. Janice and I have been blessed by facilitating this course and walking alongside couples into the beauty that God ordained married life to be, growing in wisdom on how we need to be there for each other. We have learned how important it is to prioritise our time together as a couple, which means that no matter what trials we face, we can do it together and stay connected. We are looking forward to spending 7 weeks with all of you as the hosts of this course and we feel privileged that we get to do this course alongside you. We believe that this course is an excellent way to help each of us improve and strengthen our marriage so that a healthy marriage becomes the seedbed for a healthy family!


This course will be available at The Hub.
