Couples wishing to be married at Heswall URC are invited to join us for morning worship in the months leading up to their marriage. Most couples remain “friends” of Heswall, returning for significant family events. Some couples continue to attend regularly after their wedding and some may later become active members of the church.
Heswall URC welcomes enquiries from all couples wishing to be married in church, whether they are members of our church or not. We would encourage couples to come along to the Sunday service to see the church at worship. The next step is to contact us, if possible, at least a year in advance. It is important to do this before you book your reception venue to ensure that the date is available.
To enquire about a wedding at Heswall URC, please contact us through our ‘contact us’ section.
If you just want to see what our church is like, you are welcome to come along to morning service at 10.30am on Sundays – see Services Link for details. United Reformed Churches do not have geographical parish boundaries so you do not have to live within the locality in order to be married at Heswall. The only constraint, apart from the fact that any marriage at the church is at the discretion of the Minister, is that at least one of the couple must be resident within the ‘Wirral Registration District’ which extends over a large part of the Wirral peninsula, or else be a regular worshipper at the church.
We are not able to conduct weddings on Sundays.
Once your wedding has been arranged with the Minister we can provide ongoing help and advice about your arrangements such as the legal requirements, music, readings and so on. We can also print your orders of service and other stationery if you wish, or provide a template for you to print your own. We can liaise with your florist about decorating the church or, if you prefer, we offer a selection of flowers options.
Get in touch with us by calling our offices (weekday mornings) 0151 342 8522
Alternatively, please feel free to come and talk to us over a coffee after Sunday Worship.
