Christian Marriage

At Abbotshall we wish to celebrate love in all its forms. Whatever your background, and whatever your orientation, we would love to participate it your special day and hopefully support you in your future relationship.

The Church of Scotland allows Ministers to marry people who are not members of the Church of Scotland and to the re-marriage of divorcees. However, Ministers can only conduct blessing ceremonies for civil marriages/partnership (those which were legally conducted by a registrar and not in a church).

Currently we have two options for marriages/blessings:

1. Conducting a service in the church
– Our fees are: £350 for a member or child of a member; £550 for non-members. This amount covers payment for the Beadle and the Organist as well as a donation towards the cleaning, heating and maintenance of the church building.
Our fees are reviewed annually.
2. Conducting a service outwith the church
– There is no fee for the services of the minister however, we do ask for a donation to cover their costs.

If you would like to discuss getting married in Abbotshall Church please contact the minister:

Thought for the week

Prayer for January

Prayer
Incomparable God,
our minds cannot hold You,
our words cannot express You
and Your goodness and mercy
stretch beyond our capabilities.

And yet out of Your abundant grace
You call us to live our lives
in the brightness of Your presence;
that we might hold each thought and word
to the light of Your truth,
so that we may be truth;
and hold each word and deed
to the light of Your love,
so that we may be love.

Illumine our lives
with Your vivifying presence
that we in turn, may radiate
Your life-giving love to others.
Amen
