St Georges Hyde


To discuss a wedding at St George’s Church please contact Reverend Jeremy Bentliff

Wherever you choose to get married, you make a public declaration of life-long commitment to love each other faithfully and you take on a new legal status as husband and wife. If you choose to get married in church, there is the added dimension of showing that you desire and welcome God’s involvement too. Including God in your marriage doesn’t mean that you will avoid all the usual ups and downs, but you will know that you can look to God for help and guidance and know that God’s love is available to sustain you. You will also have the support and encouragement of the Christian Church family.

If one of you has a ‘qualifying connection’ (e.g. baptised in the church, live or have lived in the parish, etc.) then you would be able to get married at St George’s Church. However, if you do not have one of these connections, you may still be able to marry at St George’s if you are willing to commit to worshipping with us regularly for a period of 6 months.

The Church accepts that, in most circumstances, a divorced person may marry again in church. If you are divorced and are wondering about the possibility of having your wedding at St George’s, you should in the first contact Katy so that a meeting can be arranged to discuss this with you.

The usual way is to have your banns read out in church on three Sundays during the three months before your wedding. The banns must be read in the parish where each of you lives as well as the church in which you are to be married if that is in another parish. Couples usually try to attend church to hear their banns read.
