Life events happen to all of us. From our own baptisms, celebrating our union with our partners through the sanctity of marriage, the baptism of our children and to the days when we say goodbye to loved ones, faith plays a significant role in helping us to celebrate for to cope with loss.
We at St Giles are here to help you through these big events.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
The Sanctity of Marriage
Marriage is an ancient and honourable tradition which Christians believe
is part of God's plan for his people. Clearly Jesus Christ held marriage in
high regard, encouraging faithful, meaningful and supportive relationships
to flourish. In John's gospel he famously did his first miracle, turning water
in to wine at the wedding in Cana.
Christians believe that marriage is a gift from God. There is something in
a public commitment of this magnitude that has a spiritual element to it
and which can transform a relationship to a new and deeper level and we
would like to be part of this with you.
Our aim at St Giles is to make your Wedding Day a truly special and wonderful day for both you and your family and friends to remember. If you are considering getting married at St Giles and one, or both of you, live within the Parish, are on the "church electoral roll" or have a family connection with the church or the parish then you can be married here.
To book a wedding we ask that you come to church on a Tuesday evening, between 6.15pm and 7.00pm, to have an initial chat with the team and to book your big day.
Before your wedding it will be necessary to have your banns read at our 10.30am Mass on the first three Sundays of the month proceeding your wedding and it would be nice to welcome you to these services.
If one of you lives in another parish, you will also need to have your banns read there as well.
Renewing Your Vows
We are also happy to offer a Service of Blessing after a registry office marriage or a Renewal of Wedding Vows, on the occasion of your Silver or Golden Wedding Anniversary.
