St John & St Stephen’s Church are pleased to welcome those who wish to be married or wish to have their marriage blessed.

You can marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. And, marrying in church has never been easier thanks to a recent change in the law.

We delight also in helping couples to celebrate significant milestones in their marriage and in Services of Blessing for those who have been previously not married in church.

The Church of England agreed in 2002 that divorced people could remarry in church under certain circumstances. We believe that marriage is for life, but also recognise that sadly, some marriages do fail. If you are divorced and wish to remarry at St John & St Stephen’s you will need to speak with the Vicar about your situation. Contact the parish office in the first instance.

Our Parish Administrator will be pleased to answer your questions about dates, costs and all that is needed to make your day very special.
