Getting Married …

The Church of England gives all British citizens, with no former spouse still living, the right to get married in the parish church where they live or in the church where they have a “Qualifying Connection”.

So, if either you, or you fiancé, live in one of our parishes, Barton-in-Fabis, Gotham, Kingston-on-Soar, Ratcliffe-on-Soar, or Thrumpton, then you can get married in that church.

If neither of you live in one of our parishes then this does not stop you from marrying at any of our churches but it does mean that you will need to provide evidence of a “Qualifying Connection”.

Further details are available from the ‘Church Weddings’ page.

If you live in the village but are getting married somewhere else then we will need to read your Banns.


Already Married …

Many couples like to mark a significant anniversary in their marriage, or if they have recently come through a difficult time in their marriage, by having a church service in which they can give thanks to God and to seek God’s blessing on their future life together.

The Church of England offers married couples, the ‘Service of Thanksgiving for Marriage’ for such occasions.

For further details enquire about a Service of Thanksgiving.
