More about weddings in the Church of England
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 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 eg for weddings.
Most of the fees paid for a wedding do not come to the church.
We therefore ask all wedding couples to help support the church by making a donation.
The requested donation (£70) is voluntary and the actual sum given is the choice of those concerned.
