Marriage Preparation Course Facilitator
Are you passionate about healthy marriages? We’re looking for enthusiastic individuals or couples who have an understanding of and positive commitment to the values of Christian marriage to present our marriage preparation courses for those getting married in the Church.
We get great feedback from couples attending our courses and from our volunteers.
Qualified Experienced Relationship Counsellor
Are you a qualified relationship counsellor with over 150 hours of relationship counselling experience? Would you like to help us in our mission to support couples in distress with professional relationship counselling regardless of their ability to pay?
We welcome applications from people who share our passion for relationship health and who respect and are willing to engage with our values.
Do you enjoy meeting people and putting them at their ease? One of Marriage Care’s most valued services is our relationship counselling. However, we cannot offer this service without a chaperone (receptionist) to welcome clients and stay in reception during the counselling session. We are looking for a friendly and helpful volunteer to spend a couple of hours on a weekday evening, sharing with other volunteers. We will pay local travelling expenses to the premises.
