Each church has its own similar but unique process for booking weddings, and whilst the fees for services are set nationally, they may be slightly different locally due to what you wish your special service to comprise for example a choir or bells would attract an additional cost if they are available.
The best way to begin a conversation about how we can help you arrange a meaningful and beautiful service in church, would be to contact your local vicar or church leader. Contact details can be found in the churches section of this website.
You can find out lots of information about church weddings from initial contact to the range of options you have in terms of the actual ceremony here
Currently the Church of England is discerning how it can pastorally respond to LGBTQI+ people seeking marriage (currently not legally possible) or some other form of prayerful service of recognition in church. Within Huyton Deanery, there are a range of beliefs held by clergy, officers and church councils, reflecting the diverse spectrum of belief and understanding concerning marriage in the national church and indeed worldwide.
Therefore, if you belong to the LGBTQI+ community and would like a conversation with us about what the current options are in the different churches of the deanery, in the first instance, please contact the Area Dean, Canon Malcolm Rogers.
We regularly pray for all those who are bereaved, recognising that this is likely to be a most painful and distressing time. Please be assured of our prayers as your arrange your loved one's funeral service, which we will do our very best to ensure is personal and meaningful.
Each church in Huyton Deanery arranges funerals in slightly different ways, but we would always recommend in the first instance a conversation with your Funeral Director who will be accustomed to making arrangements regarding local clergy, crematoriums, funeral cars etc in a way that ensures all those who need to be part of that planning are involved appropriately and in a way that doesn't lead to problems of availability.
