TYING THE KNOT

In Brighton Community Church, we hold the institution of marriage in high regard and believe that it is not just a private affair belonging to the couple, but a momentous event celebrated by the community of faith.

A Christian wedding is a time of great joy and celebration and we want to make it a memorable day for our members. However, we also believe that the primary purpose of going through a Christian wedding is not only to seek God’s blessings on the marriage, but also to acknowledge that the Christian community has a special interest and responsibility in ensuring the success of the union. Therefore, in Brighton Community Church, we have a set of policies and guidelines to adhere to, for couples who wish to have their weddings blessed by the Church. If some of them appear restrictive, it is because we wish to convey the seriousness of marriage and our commitment to facilitate only such marriages which we as a community feel reasonably confident will result in lasting Christian homes. In order to facilitate couples in their wedding application and planning, we have provided clear and specific steps below for you to follow.
