Who should I invite?

The Marriage Course is for any couple wanting to strengthen their relationship. It does not matter if you have a strong relationship or are struggling or if you are married or cohabiting.

Think about inviting:

  • Friends, family, neighbours and colleagues
  • Community groups such as gym classes
  • If your church is running Alpha and/or The Parenting Courses, consider inviting current and past guests.

The most effective way to encourage guests to come on your course is to personally invite them.

Promotional materials such as postcard invitations and banners can help and are easy to use. They can help generate interest and spread the word about your course to those outside your personal network.

  • Add your course details to our website here. Choose to promote your Alpha to thousands of people via our website and social media channels, resulting in increased guest attendance.

  • Promote your course at your church with a fun video or by sharing from previous guests

  • Give out invites and encourage everyone to invite one couple.

  • Place posters and postcards in strategic locations such as coffee shops, gyms and libraries

  • Advertise the event on your church website and social media.

  • Make sure the date, time, venue and contact information are clear on your communication. Give the course a final push the week before it starts, as many couples decide to join last minute.
