Weddings - Marriage After Divorce

 

We welcome those who are divorced who come to church seeking the opportunity for Christian marriage but this is at the discretion of the minister.  The couple should contact the rector. 

Occasionally a couple prefers a service of blessing after a civil marriage.


A Prayer

O Lord, we thank you for this wonderful gift of our love
which You have generously granted us.
Help us to continue to love each other
and accept each other unconditionally,
as we get to know each other better.
Make us generous in giving and humble in receiving.
Enable us to communicate to one another all our joys,
sufferings, and desires and all our
hopes, sorrows, and difficulties.
Give us the power of Your Love that we may
forget self and live for each other
so that we may have truly one spirit.
Bless all those who are helping us to prepare for our wedding.

Keep us good-humoured and joyful as the day draws near.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
