The Heartbeat of the Family

Cascade Marriage Ministry's goal is to encourage and strengthen marriages through events, classes, retreats and mentoring.

The Marriage Course from ALPHA

A seven session course set in a fantastic atmosphere. You will be served a continental breakfast, coffee, and tea at a table for two while listening to practical talks that are informative and fun. There is never any group work and you will never be asked to share anything about your relationship with anyone other than your partner.  A strong, loving, and lifelong marriage doesn’t happen by chance.  It takes effort and dedication to keep the fun and romance alive. We can all learn how to make even the happiest marriage better.  $40 per couple.  Facilitated by the Marriage Ministry Team.

Over six sessions, the course will help you to:

  • Keep your long term aim in mind
  • Meet you teenager's needs

Who is it for?

The Parenting Teenagers Course is for parents, step-parents, prospective parents or carers of teenagers aged 11-18 years. 

The course is for every type of parenting situation including parenting on your own, step-parenting and parenting as a couple.

The Parenting Teenagers Course is based on Christian principles but designed for all couples with or without a church background. 

What can I expect?

On The Parenting Teenagers Course, you are seated in small groups based on the age of your oldest child so that you can meet other parents and carers with teenagers of a similar age.

Each session begins with something to eat and/or drink, giving you space to relax and chat to other parents or carers followed by a practical talk and a time for discussion in groups. 

The talk is given live or on DVD and includes street interview, filmed clips of parents and teenagers sharing their own experiences and advice from parenting experts.  The class fee is $20 per couple / $10 Individual.
