Wedding Show at Tatton Park on 31 Jan – 1 Feb 2015.

Filed under: news — admin @ 12:12 am

Mothers’ Union members join clergy in the Diocese of Chester to promote church wedding services at the Tatton Wedding Fair. The team find that many couples would like a church service, but think they cannot have one. A chat to our volunteers helps clear up misunderstandings about the need to be baptised (not required); couples of different faiths, ( not a problem) and whether you have to live in the parish (you need a connection with the parish e.g. lived in the parish as a child).
