WEDDINGS

The rules governing the Church of England weddings have been revised recently. Please find below the qualifying connection, which needs to be satisfied in order to get married in Funtington Churches.

You can marry in a Church of England church if you can show;

That one of you:

  •  has at any time lived in the Parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  •  was baptised in the parish concerned or
  • was prepared for confirmation in the parish or
  • has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents, at any time after you were born:

  • has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
  • has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or

That one of your parents or grandparents

  •  was married in the parish

In all cases involving church services ie going to normal church services, baptism, confirmation or marriage -  this only applies to Church of England services.
