We would love to discuss your upcoming marriage with you.

As with any Parish Church in England, anyone who lives in our parish is legally qualified to get married at St John’s. To find out if you live in our parish please visit achurchnearyou.com. However, even if you live outside our parish it may still be possible to be married in our church.

You can marry in a Church of England church if you can show that one of you:

  • has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months, or
  • was baptised (christened) in the parish concerned, or
  • is confirmed and your confirmation was entered in the register of confirmations for a church or chapel in the parish (this will usually be the case if you were prepared for confirmation in the parish), or
  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months, or
  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months

or

That one of your parents or grandparents:

  • was married in the parish
