St Nicholas is a lovely old church, and the perfect place for smaller weddings. This ecumenical (a mix of Church of England, URC and Methodist) church is located on the Northern edge of Worcester, and is easy to reach from the town or the nearby motorway junction. The church is approximately 800 years old, and is painted white inside and out, with a red tiled roof, and tiled aisle. It’s a gem of a country church on the edge of a city, perfect for a marriage ceremony to remember, and a beautiful start to married life.
We still have good availability for weddings on Saturdays throughout 2014 and beyond, so if a church wedding appeals to you, read on!
You are entitled to get married in our church if you live within the parish and neither of you have been married before. If you’d like to get married here but this is not your local church, you will need to demonstrate that you have a connection to us. There are a number of ways in which you can do this.
You can marry in a CofE church if you can show that one of you:
- has at any time lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
- was baptised in the parish concerned or
- was prepared for confirmation in the parish or
- has at any time regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or
- That one of your parents, at any time after you were born has lived in the parish for a period of at least 6 months or
- has regularly gone to normal church services in the parish church for a period of at least 6 months or
- That one of your parents or grandparents was married in the parish
If you have decided to get married elsewhere, but this is your parish, you will need to have your Banns read here. We can then provide you with a Banns Certificate for you to give to the priest at the church where you are to be married. Please download the banns form if you require this service – the form will tell you how much this will cost and who to contact.
Please note that although new same sex marriage legislation is due to come into force, it remains the case that it is not legally possible for same sex couples to marry in the Church of England.
