‘Can we get married at this church?’
Barnet URC is a registered venue for the legal solemnization of marriage between two persons of the opposite sex, and we welcome enquiries from couples who are thinking about getting married in the church. Our Minister will meet with you to explore with you not only your plans for the day, but also the nature of your marriage commitment to one another – and the distinctive character of a marriage in church – so that we can ensure together that Barnet URC is the right place for your wedding.
‘What if I’ve been married before?’
A previous marriage and divorce will not necessarily rule out getting married at Barnet URC. The Christian faith teaches us that whatever might have gone wrong for us, there is always the opportunity for redemption and a fresh start.
‘What else do I need to know?’
As well as the church arrangements, you will need to make arrangements with the local Registrar to obtain the necessary legal authority for marriage. The church’s Minister will be able to advise you about this.
