Information for same sex couples

Information for same sex couplesThe law prevents ministers of the Church of England from carrying out same-sex marriages. And although there are no authorised services for blessing a same-sex civil marriage, your local church can still support you with prayer.

Church of England ministers can not carry out or bless same-sex marriages, but your local church is still there for you. At any time you are welcome to come and pray with us, or ask us to pray for you. You might just need space for yourself to pray – some churches or cathedrals are left open at certain times so anyone can go in.

If you need a place to connect with God, worship, give thanks and join others in learning about the Christian faith, you will be very welcome at your local church. To find your local church details use the search box below.
