WEDDINGS


WHAT IS CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE?

Christian Marriage is the the lifelong commitment of two people to one another, given in the sight of God. The Christian Wedding Service is the means by which we seek God's blessing on our life together as a couple, and an occasion on which we make vows as husband and wife.

St Anne's Parish Church is available for marriage to anyone living within the parish, on the electoral role of the parish or has a connection with the Church. You do not need to be a regular Church-goer to be married in Church.

DID YOU KNOW - WE ARE THE ONLY CHURCH IN ST ANNES WITH A PEEL OF BELLS?

The Church of England provides a variety of styles and services to celebrate Christian marriage.

These include: 

  • traditional language
  • modern language 
  • service including the Eucharist
  • service of blessing after a civil ceremony.

A wedding service at St Anne's Parish Church can be conducted very simply, or celebrated with our organist and choir, and/or bellringers. 

More information about weddings in the Church of England can be found here.
