Guests at your Marriage Preparation or Marriage Course may be eligible to access a $200 subsidy to put towards the course if it is run by an authorised Alpha advisor. 

To become an authorised Alpha Advisor, you will need to attend a free information and training session. Beyond attending the information session, you will need to complete a Memorandum of Understanding regarding the partnership between Alpha and your church. Advisors must also be a member of a Recognised Professional Association (such as the Australian Counselling Association or Marriage and Relationship Educators' Association of Australia).

Information sessions are planned for January in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide in January, click here to register.

If you live in an area where an information session is not planned, or cannot make it, we have run webinar based information sessions. Contact Philippa Fielding, the National Director for Marriage and Parenting at
