Qualifying Connections

 

A person has a Qualifying Connection with a parish and is therefore able to be married in the parish church if that person:

- was baptised in the parish.

- had his or her confirmation entered in a church register book of a church or chapel in the parish

- has at any time had his or her usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months

- has at any time habitually attended public worship in the parish for at least 6 months;

 

or a Parent of that person has at any time during that person’s lifetime:

- had his or her usual place of residence in the parish for at least 6 months

- habitually attended public worship in the parish for at least 6 months

- a Parent or Grandparent of that person was married in the parish.

 

Only one person in the party (i.e. the bride or the groom) has to be able to demonstrate a connection.

 

If you are not sure whether you qualify in any of these ways, this does not mean you cannot get married at St George's. It is possible for anyone to get married here by coming on to the electoral roll. Please do contact us if you wish to know more about weddings and getting married at St George's.
