Weddings are conducted throughout the year at all three Church buildings and our Rector will be pleased to help you prepare for your big day. (Contact details below).

There are, however, some current legal requirements which you will need to know about. Some frequently asked questions include ‘Can I marry outside of my parish?’, ‘Do I need to have been baptised in order to marry in Church?’, and ‘What is the Church’s current position on the remarriage of divorcees?’
