Marriage at St Mary Magdalene, Altofts
St Mary Magdalene, Altofts offers Marriage in church to those who wish to bring their relationship before God to be blessed.
A wedding is one of life's great moments, a time of solemn commitment as well as good wishes, feasting and joy. St John tells us how Jesus shared in such an occasion at Cana, and gave there a sign of new beginnings as he turned water into wine.
Marriage is intended by God to be a creative relationship, as his blessing enables husband and wife to love and support each other in good times and in bad, and to share in the care and upbringing of children. For Christians, marriage is also an invitation to share life together in the spirit of Jesus Christ. It is based upon a solemn, public and life-long covenant between a man and a woman, declared and celebrated in the presence of God and before witnesses.
On their wedding day the bride and bridegroom face each other, make their promises and receive God's blessing. Those who attend a wedding are witnesses of the marriage, and express their support by their presence and your prayers. Their support does not end today: the couple will value continued encouragement in the days and years ahead of them.
