Publishing Banns of Marriage
If you are getting married in a Church of England Church elsewhere by way of the Publication of Banns and you live in our parish you will need us to read your Banns. Banns have to be read on three consecutive Sundays within three months of your wedding day so it is important to get the timing right. The statutory fee for reading your Banns (and the certificate which will need to be given to the church at which you are going to be married) is currently £45. This usually increases a little each January but we will let you know what the new fee is, if it has increased.
Couples often like to come along to hear their Banns being read (at least once) and we’ll be delighted to welcome you to the service. We normally read them during our 11 o'clock service on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday’s of the month and we pray for, your wedding day and your married life together as part of that as well.
To check that you live in the parish please take a look at ‘A Church Near You’ and if you do, then fill in the form below and we will be in touch with you as soon as we can.
