Marriage Council




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 worked closely with clergy to provide resources to support them with couples.

The Council provides guidance on the preparation of marriage and marriage enrichment, as well as contacts for counselling services for those whose marriages have run into difficulty.

Further information on the work of the Church of Ireland Marriage Council can be found at its website marriage.ireland.anglican.org and Facebook page.
