We are delighted that you are thinking about getting married and that you are considering

S. John’s as a place to seek God’s blessing upon your marriage.

We look forward to working with you as you plan your Wedding Day and the rest of your married life together. We will hope to support you not only in the short-term, in the run up to your wedding, but also in your married lives together.

Marriage and the Law

In order to be married in any Parish Church in England you have, by law, to meet certain requirements – which have to do with your residential status, your paternal home, the place where you regularly worship or your affinity to the Church.

Before you do anything else you should make an appointment to see the Parish Priest, Fr. Peter Walsh (07585 333033) He will explain the law as it applies to your marriage and will discuss the possibilities of a Wedding Service in Church.

S. John’s Church aims to support and encourage you as a couple, as you begin your married life together.

We offer you our joyful love and friendship at this exciting time in your lives.
