Getting married in church is very special. People choose to get married at All Saints for all kinds of reasons; not only is All Saints a beautiful venue and the vows very meaningful, we will also take time to get to know you and your family and take care to plan the right marriage service for both of you. In addition, we will offer you support and space to prepare for the married life you will share. In all of this we will seek God’s blessing for your life together.
Marriage is open to those who live in the parish or who have a qualifying connection to the church. If you wish to get married at All Saints, come along to one of our Sunday morning services at 10am and speak to a member of the clergy afterwards. With our bishop’s permission we can conduct marriages for those who have been married before and with such second marriages we will offer particular support and care in preparation for the big day. If you have children, we can make sure they feel included and involved.
Do you live in the parish of All Saints West Dulwich? As a parish church All Saints covers a specific geographical area from Brockwell Park in the north, bounded by the railway lines running into West Dulwich and Tulse Hill stations to the east and west, and following a rather complicated southern boundary that includes the shops on Croxted Road but not the Rosendale pub. If you live within this area then we are your parish church. If you’re not sure, go to www.achurchnearyou.com and click on “Search by Postcode or Place”.
We regret that at the moment the Church of England is not allowed to carry out same-sex marriages, but you would be very welcome to get in touch to discuss holding a service of thanksgiving for civil marriage or civil partnership, for which geographical restrictions do not apply.
