Seeking to make St Anne's a home to invite everyone into!

 As a Christian community we believe that God has instituted marriage

for mutual love support and care of husband and wife, based on the

love of Jesus shown to his bride the church.

For any couple seeking marriage at St Anne's they need in the first

instance to contact the vicar at the normal office hour (Monday 7 pm

till 7:30 pm).

The couple will meet the vicar several times in preparation for their

marriage and will be encouraged to explore;

future commitment to each other in a personal and spiritual way so

they can face all that their married life may encounter

community

forgiveness.


Outline of process

 1. Couple meet vicar at office hour, paperwork started and date for

wedding discussed

 2. Couple meet with vicar as part of the marriage preparation

 3.No more than 3 months before wedding the banns are read at St

Anne's and the parish of residence

 4. Wedding rehearsal takes place during the week before the wedding date,

final arrangements and fees paid (currently £434 at St Anne)


Marriage of Divorcees


If one of the couple has been previously married or been part of a civil

partnership, before any marriage in church can be considered they will

have to be interviewed by the vicar following the House of Bishops

Guidelines.  


Please contact the vicar for more information.
