Weddings

A wedding is one of life's great moments and All Saints’ welcomes these celebrations as a vital part of the Church’s ministry. Christians understand marriage to be a creative relationship - God's blessing enables husband and wife to love and support each other in good times and bad. Marriage is also seen as an invitation to share life together in the spirit of Jesus Christ. Parish clergy work with this understanding to assist couples in preparing their wedding service as well as helping them prepare for their lives ahead.

Marriage Equality legislation in New Zealand makes provision for couples of different or the same gender to marry. Sadly, The Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia is currently unable to offer wedding services for couples of the same gender. It is however, able to offer a Service of Blessing for couples of the same or different genders who have had a civil marriage ceremony. The clergy at All Saints are very happy to officiate at these services.
