Weddings

And Now These Three Remain: Faith, Hope And Love
  • What is the first step to getting married in a Methodist Church?
    Contact us and one of the Ministry Team will get back to you to discuss. Please indicate which church you want to get married in. One of the parties would normally have to be a resident in the Registration District where the church is situated (Bradford Metropolitan District or Leeds Metropolitan District).
  • Do you have to tell the Registrar?
    Yes, your details need to be displayed in the Registrar’s office where you live before the wedding can take place.
  • Are there fees involved?
    Yes, the Minister will confirm the details; however, you will normally be charged a fee for use of the church, and for the services of an organist, caretaker, steward and sound desk.
  • What if one or both of us have been divorced?
    The Minister will talk to you about the circumstances of the divorce and make a decision accordingly.

Following prayerful consideration by the whole Church, the Methodist Conference has voted to confirm provisional resolutions on the principles or qualities of good relating, understanding of cohabitation and same sex marriages conducted on Methodist premises or by Methodist office-holders.
