But Ruth said, Do not urge me to leave you or turn back from following you; for where you go, I will go, and where you lodge, I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God, my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. Thus may the Lord do to me, and worse, if anything but death parts you and me.
The Book of Ruth chapter 1
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
The White Church is a very popular venue for weddings. We like to think that this is not just to do with how we look but is also a response to the warm welcome that we extend to couples of all ages seeking to begin their journey through life as husband and wife.
The first step is always to speak with the minister. He will give advice and let you know if dates and times are available in the church calendar. After the initial chat the minister will expect you to attend a morning service (10.45am) and afterwards he will have a private meeting with you to confirm details and to provide you with the paperwork for your wedding. He will also explain the scale of fees that will apply.
Music is an important part of the marriage ceremony. Our organist is always eager to discuss your requirements. He is available at the church following morning service.
In common with most Free Churches we recognise that sometimes things don't work out between people and that despite our best efforts marriages fail. Please do not be embarrassed about contacting us if you or your partner have been divorced. We are interested in your future, not your past.
We do not perform same-sex ceremonies.
