MarriageSupporting you to experience the joys of a Christ-centred marriage
Marriage is precious to God and the journey leading up to the wedding day is important as it lays the foundation of the marriage. Here at Hope Church, we are passionate about helping you experience the joys of a Christ-centred marriage.
Couples who are interested in having their marriage solemnised by Hope Church are required to meet the Marriage Guidelines. Due to the availability of our pastors, we require at least one party to be a member/regular attendee of Hope Church.
Please speak to your immediate pastoral leaders, or email email@example.com for more information.
1. Premarital counselling
The purpose of premarital counselling is to empower you to make good decisions in the area of relationships and marriage. It also helps couples understand their respective roles in the family and in the family of God.
We do require pre-marital counselling, which can be arranged with respective pastors or another qualified counsellor. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make necessary arrangements.
2. From Courtship to Marriage course (Next Steps Academy)
This course aims to prepare and equip you as you look to make a lifelong commitment in marriage. It will cover the overview of what a marriage relationship is and is not, conflict resolution, and how to manage finances within marriage.
We do require you to attend this class prior to marriage. We run this class once a year, so please plan ahead. Click here for more information on Next Step Academy Classes.
3. Marriage administration
We are here to help you with the registration of marriage in Australia. Once you are engaged in the process, our marriage personnel will work with you closely in ensuring that the marriage registration process is smooth.
4. Wedding celebrant service
Currently, in Hope Church, we have 4 pastors who are marriage celebrants. The service provided by our celebrants is free as we would love to bless the couple.
