"Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us." 1 John 4: v11 (NIV)

Wedding 2We encourage marriage as a life-long commitment and a celebration of the gift of God's love that couples find in each other.

St Philip's Church provides an intimate venue for a wedding and everyone involved aims to make the day very special and personal.

Wedding 1Our wedding services have a friendly, happy and light feel, but we take marriage seriously and spend a long time in preparation to ensure everything goes smoothly.

We do realise that some marriages break down and, if you approach us in this position, we will look at your situation fairly.

If you would like to get married at St Philip's Church, the process is simple and easy:

  • Contact the Parish Office who will send you an information pack and invite you to fill in the forms and send them back.
  • Set an initial date with the Parish Office.
  • You will then be notified which of the Clergy will conduct the service.
  • Four months before your wedding the Clergy will make contact with you to talk you through and plan your marriage service. This will include discussing hymns, readings and prayers etc
  • You will then be invited to two marriage preparation sessions led by a couple from our church.
  • A date for the marriage rehearsal is also set, which is usually a few days before the wedding.
