More about weddings in the Church of England

We also ask for a donation of £70 for the church.

This is a voluntary donation and the actual amount given is at the discretion of the couple concerned.

 

It is worth noting that most of the fees paid for a wedding do not come to the church and that the church does not receive any financial support from external sources to meet its running costs e.g. materials for services, insurances, organ, utilities, clock etc. In addition, the costs of maintaining the building and ensuring that the churchyard is in good order have to be met. Much of the cost of the clergy also has to be raised by those who use the church.

 

This is all done by volunteers who generously give both their time and money and also through the generosity of those who use the services of the church e.g. for weddings.

 

We therefore ask all wedding couples to help support the church by making a donation.
