You will then need to meet with the churchwarden to complete the paperwork when you will need to provide evidence of ID and residence.

Couples are encouraged to come to our 10:45am service on Sunday s to hear their banns being read especially the last Sunday as the certificate to prove that the banns have been read will be available after the service.
