Marriage at All Saints

Your wedding day

A new beginning


If you are a resident of the parish of Emscote, or have some other qualifying connection, and you would like to be married within the context of a Christian Service, we would be very happy to discuss this with you.



All Saints has many facilities that will help make your wedding a very special day. The church and environs offer an unusually wide range of settings and backgrounds for such a modern building.

The old and new together

The old and the new


The original All Saints church - Victorian gothic - had to be demolished in the late 1960s, not long after reaching its centenary year (left).


Today's All Saints (right and above) is not a traditional old church with a long 'aisle': instead it is 'in the round' and like a beautiful Tent of Meeting.  

The modern building (above and right) was consecrated in 1989.   Very well appointed, it welcomes people and groups from miles around for a whole range of functions.       




See 'Room Hire' and above left for more details.                                        


Renewal of marriage vows



We are also glad to hear from couples who wish to renew their wedding vows for whatever reasons. The renewal of vows can take place as a separate service or as part of the main Sunday Parish Mass.



Marriage of divorcees in Church


All Saints' affirms the ideal that Christian marriage should be for life.  Nevertheless, we recognise that for many different reasons, marriages do break down.  Since at the heart of the Christian message is the possibility of forgiveness and new life we are prepared to consider a marriage in church after divorce, depending on the particular circumstances. 


For those who have been married before and would like an opportunity to discuss the possibility of a church service, contact the church office initially.
