PCUK have been working collaboratively with Marriage Resource to develop an adapted version of the Resourcing Pastoral Carers Course that centers on supporting and caring for marriages. The core elements of the Resourcing Pastoral Carers Course remain but some of the examples and exercises have been adapted to make them more relevant and helpful to those carers who specifically support couples and marriages.

The adaptation was completed in summer 2014 and the course is now in pilot stage with PCUK Regional Trainers working in Marriage Resource. Whilst plans are not yet firmed up, our hope is that the adapted marriage course will be an additional resourcing tool available in 2015 and beyond.

So if you would like to know more about the course, run a course in your location or become a trainer to deliver the course, please be in touch with the director of pastoral care e-mail: pastoral@acc-uk.org
