Why Choose a Church Ceremony?

These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.

The church does not receive any financial support form 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 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 to 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 church for services e.g. 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 suggested requested donation (£70) is voluntary and the actual sum given is the choice of those concerned.                                

 To book a wedding you need to talk to a member of the ministry team. Currently this should be done at vestry hour, which takes place on Wednesday evenings, between 6pm and 7pm at the Rectory.It is necessary to make an apointment, so please email   or contact St Botolph's through our Facebook page
