Weddings at St Peter and St John You are welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are christened and whether or not you regularly go to church. It is your wedding day and within the restrictions of the legal process we wish to help you create a service that reflects your love for each other and has that personal touch. And, marrying in church has never been easier.
You can marry in a CofE 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 gone to 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
And did you know that if you move house, you’re immediately connected to the church there? That means you can marry in the church of your new parish. Even if you cannot demonstrate any of the above connections, we want to help you explore whether it may still be possible for you to marry at St Peter and St John Church.
