Marriage

 

”Love is patient; love is kind.” (1 Cor. 13.4)

Marriage is a gift of God in creation. God created man and woman to live in mutual fellowship and love, and marriage is given by God for this purpose.

Marriage is the foundation of family life, but it is also a legal contract, requiring both the will and consent of the couple. As they get married, a couple makes binding promises, and their union is recognised by society. They submit to each other and to the covenant of God's loving care, and the congregation prays that God may bless them in their life together.

On these pages, you'll find information about legal requirements and practical issues, as well as about marriage preparation, the service, getting married abroad and the church's current position concerning registered partnerships.

”So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” (Matthew 19.6)
