Book the reading of banns in the Wentwood Ministry Area for a church wedding happening elsewhere.

Please note that all information will be dealt with according to the GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018. We use the information collected in this form in order to process your request for the publication of your banns of marriage in anticipation of a church wedding in a parish other than those in the Wentwood Ministry Area; to enter the details of your banns into the legal parish banns register, which is secured on the church premises; and to complete a banns certificate. If you choose to opt in to further contact, we may retain certain information in order to advise you about activities or services in the parish church when relevant and appropriate. We do not share information with third parties. You have the right to review and determine what we do with information we hold on you.

Best number to reach you, please.

Normally this will be the local parish church for the bride and/or groom's address.

Name and place, please.

Your banns must be called on three consecutive Sunday services in the weeks prior to your wedding. We will normally call your banns on the first three Sundays of the month before your wedding. (For example, if your wedding is in July, the banns would be called on the first three Sundays of June.) There is no legal requirement for you to be present, but we can assure you of a very warm welcome. You may collect your certificate in person at the service on the day of the third calling, or at a convenient time by arrangement with the clergy.

Name and place, please.

Name and place, please.

Most banns requests can be handled by email at the initial stages, although you may wish to attend church to hear your banns read and collect your banns certificate. If, however, you would like to meet the clergy to clarify any points or ask any questions, you are most welcome to book an appointment. Please tick "yes", and we will come back to you to make the arrangements.

We may wish to contact you later in order to advise you of activities or worship services that may be appropriate or relevant to you and your family, or to congratulate you privately on your wedding or anniversary. Such communications would be only very occasional at most, and we promise that we will NEVER share your personal information with 3rd parties. May we have your consent to do this?

Any further comments, additional information, or questions?
