Weddings

The churches in the ARCH Benefice are available for weddings to anyone who lives in the parish and also to those who can prove a link to one of the churches.

In addition to the service itself we also offer a Marriage Preparation Day to all couples. The purpose behind the preparation day is to encourage communication within relationships. The people who give the most positive feedback are those whose relationships have been longest established which informs us that this a day well spent. There is no charge for this, but donations are welcome from attendees.

If you are unfamiliar with our churches please look at the individual descriptions found elsewhere on the website.

Seating capacity ranges from 100 – 170 (see the page on church facilities for more details).

Bells are available at all the churches except Rous Lench.

Organs (of the musical variety) are also in all our churches, as are other keyboard musical instruments. Other local support can be offered through access to choirs and the St James' Harvington Handbell Ringers.

We do not have toilet facilities at our churches, but we do have nearby options at the village halls (Abbots Morton, Church Lench and Rous Lench). At Harvington the toilets in the pub located across the road from the church may be used with permission from the landlord.

Suggestion: book or make a provisional reservation on your reception venue first as they tend to get booked up before churches.

Please contact the rector for availability of dates and further information.
