Christian Marriage

Ministers of the Church of Scotland are authorised to perform marriages. The Church does not regard marriage as a sacrament and ministers are free to marry people who are not members of the Church of Scotland. The Church of Scotland also permits the re-marriage of divorcees in church.

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

Rev Justin Taylor

Telephone: (01592 ) 267915


For 2017 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.

Blessing of a civil marriage

Ministers of the Church of Scotland can also conduct blessing ceremonies for civil marriages (those which were legally conducted by a registrar and not in a church). To discuss this, please contact the minister.
