So the question has been asked, the answer given, and now you want to get married? Great! We want to help you plan for the special day. Even more importantly, we would like to help you prepare for married life and so run a Marriage Preparation Day every year.

Do make contact with us (via the Church Office, see details below) to find out if you are qualified to be married in Christ Church and to start making plans.

Our church building is spacious, carpeted and light.  We can seat several hundred people but a smaller group won’t feel lost.  Toddlers can make use of the special crèche area.

Our Church Centre is a modern carpeted building suitable for receptions of up to 100 guests.  The cost of hire combined with external caterers makes this a competitive choice.

Marriage Preparation

Marriage is more than a wedding day.  Our marriage preparation day has been enjoyed and valued by many couples who find it very useful.

What is it?

A marriage preparation course is held one Saturday in February during National Marriage Week.

We cover

  • Communication skills
  • The importance of commitment
  • Resolving conflict
  • Keeping love alive
  • Talking about goals and values

What’s involved?

The day has an informal feel to it. After the chance to meet others over a cup of coffee there will be short talks interspersed with exercises and questions for you to discuss as a couple.

Who it it for?

The course is for any couple who want to have the best possible start to their marriage.  The course, while based on Christian principles, is very helpful and relevant for any couple with or without a Christian faith or church background.

How can I register?

Please contact the Vicar via the Church Office.

Make the best start for your marriage by preparing for it!
