How do we know if we are able to be married in either St John's or All Saints'?

You can marry in a C of E 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. In all cases involving church services - i.e. going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage - this applies only to Church of England services. 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 either at St John's or All Saints' Church.
