Christians believe that marriage is a gift from God. There is something in a public commitment of
this magnitude that has a spiritual element to it which can transform a relationship to a new and deeper
level. In the marriage ceremony, a couple makes a public declaration of lifelong commitment to
love, and to care for, each other.
If you would like to be married in All Saints’ church, the first thing you need to do is to contact the
vicar. This can be done by attending the Parish Office, usually held on a Saturday morning
between 10.00am and 11.00am in the church.
You may be married in this church if you can show that one of you:-
has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months; or
was baptised in the parish concerned; or
was prepared for confirmation in the parish; or
has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period
of at least 6 months; or
that one of your parents, at any time after you were born, has lived in the parish for a
period of at least 6 months; or
has regularly attended normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least
6 months; or
that one of your parents or grandparents was married in the parish.
It is an accepted fact that a wedding day should be one of the happiest days in the life of a couple, so we at
All Saints set out and do our utmost to help make it so.
