A group being trained in the use of the Prepare/Enrich programme at Kinmylies Church
Prepare / Enrich is a support programme for couple who are married, in a relationship or who are engaged to be married. The delivery of the programme is done by 'mentor' couples and a training course for mentor couples was delivered in Inverness in 2006.
Since then, one of the churches which has made extensive use of the programme is Hilton Parish Church via Colm Black (Family Support Worker) and his wife Isabel. Colm wrote a short piece for National Marriage Week (7 - 14 Feb 2008).

It is hoped to run a further course (or courses) in Inverness over the weekend of a Friday/Saturday 20/21 June, 2008 (depending on the preferences of those who might like to be involved).
It is stressed that the mentor couple training is for any couple in the churches who might feel a calling to the work of supporting others in their relationships and/or intentions to marry.

The course cost will be around £75.00 - to include course manual, materials and trial inventory (Note 1.).
Further information about the Prepare/Enrich programme in general can be <found here>.
The Prepare/Enrich programme is initiated by the completion (by the couple being mentored) of an inventory (questionairre), and the analysis gives guidance to the mentoring couple. The inclusion of an inventory along with the training gives the trainee mentor couple experience in the process from the other couples perspective.
