About Marriages

OK. So you’d like to get married. First you need to be engaged … as a part of our congregation. We do not charge for our services, but we also only provide them for people who are connected to the church.

Lots of people want to get married, and sometimes they are looking for a nice place in which to hold a service. First of all, we’re not a traditional looking church. And second, we provide the sacraments as a service to those who are looking to be part of a church not just a place for a service. We can, if you like,┬árefer you to other nearby churches that do not share our thoughts (on holding services … or charging people for weddings).

According to the Prayer Book, “Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between a man and a woman in the presence of God … it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of this Church.”

For more info on planning your wedding here, please speak to one of our pastors.
