The change in the Law (1 October, 2008) allows couples who are not ordinarily resident or habitual worshippers to have the right to ask to be married in churches that are not their own parish churches in very clearly defined circumstances. Before contacting us please make sure that you fulfil the criteria. You will later need to be able to produce documentary or attested evidence of such a claim.

All such enquiries MUST be made in writing to the Vicar and not by email to  Father Nicholas Cranfield FSA, 10 Duke Humphrey Road, Blackheath SE3 0TY. Please ensure that you enclose a stamped addressed envelope with your initial enquiry but do not send any original documentation.
