Love After Marriage (LAM) is a Holy Spirit-led journey 
into emotional, spiritual, and sexual oneness. Enhance, transform, and renew your marriage and intimacy together as God intended.


Who is this for?

This is for any married couple who desires to feel closer or more connected with one another. It’s designed to set healthy marriages on fire and rekindle struggling marriages. You’re invited to a deeper experience of excitement and intimacy together.

Ralph and Lucy
Through LAM, we took time to look at our relationship rather than just being in relationship. It helped us communicate with each other. We talked about issues we had been avoiding and started to address them rather than sweep them under the carpet. If you want to make things better, LAM will do this for you.
— Ralph & Lucy Westmacott

What problems does it address?

If you feel shut-down, find it difficult to resolve conflict, or don’t experience the sexual oneness you desire, Love After Marriage is for you.


What will life look like afterwards?

You’ll become more comfortable to be yourself, share your needs, and experience what God intended marriage to be… the most fulfilling relationship He’s given to us! You’ll also be able to identify and resolve issues that rob you the pleasure of enjoying one another.

Chris and Ellie
LAM has helped us to remember we are important as individuals and worthy of respect and love. We have stopped dominating each other and listen more. We feel so much closer and have stopped putting work and other people before one another.
— Chris & Ellie Parsons

How does it work?

Each week there will be teaching on an aspect of marriage followed by practical exercises in a small group setting, designed to increase understanding and intimacy.


What’s the format?

2 hour sessions for 10–12 weeks. Discussion and exercises are in small group.
