St Alban North Harrow

Same Sex Couples

Christians hold a variety of views about human relationships and sexuality.

The Church of England is still prevented by law from conducting weddings for people of the same sex, but General Synod, the parliament of the Church of England, has agreed that they wish to allow clergy the option to offer a service of blessing in church to same sex couples following a wedding or civil partnership ceremony elsewhere: a draft form of possible prayers and words for such a service can be found here.

Members of our church are themselves in a variety of relationships, including faithful committed partnerships with people of the same sex.

The Vicar of this church is happy to discuss with couples an appropriate way of marking their commitment to each other. Please contact Revd Sarah Archer  directly.
