Important Information in view of Coronavirus
As lockdown rules have eased in Scotland now we are in level 3. This means that wedding services can be held in church and up to 50 people may attend such services. This maximum number includes all those at the ceremony including the couple, the witnesses, photographer and guests but excludes the celebrant and those employed or volunteering at the venue to facilitate the marriage.
Those attending or helping out must wear their face covering in the building, unless they are exempt of this on medical grounds, or have a speaking role in the service. Please be prepared that your name and phone number might be recorded for track and tracing purposes. There is a one way system in the church, please follow the signs. There are designated seats for single visitors and family groups at 2 metres distances between designated seats. You will be shown to an available seat. Singing is still not permitted during worship. We use recored worship music and praise instead.
Congratulations! You’re in love, you’ve decided to spend the rest of your lives together and got engaged, now you are seeking your perfect venue to get married.
If you’re considering making a life time commitment to a significant other this is a big step and we will support you all the way.
A wedding service at St. Stephen’s Comely Bank is a beautiful and blessed service, with promises taken between husband and wife before the eyes of God. A wedding service is both a legal event whereby a marriage occurs, and a Holy service, whereby God unifies a couple together in Holy matrimony.
Wedding preparation classes are provided to help you prepare for your married lives together. These are informal and designed to help you to get to know each other and understand the serious commitment of marriage.
SSCB is a beautiful church in the heart of Comely Bank. Our minister speaks lovingly and encouragingly at wedding services. We would however encourage those only seeking a good location and orator, but not seeking a religious service or a commitment before God, to consider one of Edinburgh’s many beautiful licenced venues.
There is a set order of service for a wedding, we can help you to choose appropriate hymns and readings if requested. There is a fee to cover the costs of the church, church officer and organist.
