The Church of Ireland Marriage Council was established by the General Synod in 1996 in consequence of the findings of the Select Committee on Marriage, which was convened in 1991 and reported in 1995. The Council was charged with the introduction of a wide range of services in support of marriage and has worked steadily, not only to introduce these services, but to make them available throughout the Church of Ireland.
As part of its remit, the Marriage Council has developed a marriage enrichment course. Entitled 'Marriage Matters', this course is delivered by a network of trained facilitators.
The Council also offers marriage preparation courses for couples embarking on marriage, as well as counselling services for those whose marriages have run into difficultly.
