Holy Trinity Church  

Getting married? Congratulations!

We hope you will consider Holy Trinity Church as the venue for your wedding.

Use this page:

- to arrange the reading of your Banns of Marriage for a wedding elsewhere;

- to plan or arrange a wedding in church here;

- to explore the possibility of remarriage in church after divorce.

Banns of Marriage:

Step 1: Please check via the boundaries page that you do reside within Holy Trinity parish.

Step 2:
To arrange your Banns of Marriage, please contact the Vicar, who will arrange to see you both to check your ID and address details, complete the application form, and agree when the Banns of Marriage will be read in church. The meeting normally takes 20-25 minutes. After the Banns have been read, he will issue a certificate which you will need to give to the vicar taking your wedding. A fee is payable for reading the Banns of Marriage and issuing the certificate.

To discuss getting married in Holy Trinity Church, please contact one of the clergy, who will be pleased to hear from you.

Weddings are frequently booked a year or more in advance, and this may be necessary if you are to have your first choice of date and time at the church and be accommodated at your preferred reception venue. Please do not make firm arrangements for your reception before checking the availability of the church and one of the clergy. However, we try to be flexible and accommodating and are often able to make arrangements at much shorter notice.

Remarriage following divorce:

If the proposed marriage follows the divorce of one or both parties, a church wedding may be possible subject to the outcome of discussion with one of the clergy.

Please contact us as early as possible for more details.

Loving God,
We thank you for the gift of marriage
and for all the riches brought by love.
Teach us to live
in the light of the love that never ends,
and grant us the grace of patience,
kindness and forgiveness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
