As a Church community we are delighted to be involved in the establishment of healthy marriages and the celebration of this in a Christian wedding.  As an expression of this commitment there are three areas we invite you to be involved in as you prepare for this important step together:-

Planning a Christian wedding …

That celebrates your new relationship and honours God who delights in marriage.  Usually this will involve a meeting with the Minister taking the service and a rehearsal closer to the time.  All marriages at East Taieri are between a man and a woman, and are conducted either by one of our ministers or another agreed Christian Minister.  

Preparing for a lifetime together...

There is a short course about marriage called Prepare/Enrich that a trained couple from our parish will lead you through. Weddingrings 800  Click here for more details on Prepare/Enrich

Discovering a faith that will provide a foundation for your marriage...

As you have decided on a Christian wedding we encourage you to consider how you might discover or deepen your faith as a foundation for a lifetime together.  A great way of doing this is by attending an Alpha course.  Alpha seeks to explore what it means to have a relationship with Jesus, and the difference this makes in our lives.  The course takes place in an informal and friendly setting over a shared meal.  For more information on Alpha click here

We also invite you to attend one of our worship services. Click here for service details.
