On Marriage Equality in the Church of England
We deeply regret that the Church of England does not currently conduct marriage ceremonies for same-sex couples. We would like to be able to celebrate all unions between couples in a spirit of inclusion and love which affirms rather than discriminates, and continue to work for this within the church.
We are bitterly sorry for the pain the church continues to cause to our LGBTQ siblings, and stand with you in your anger and distress.
Your Dean and Campus Chaplains affirm that:
God loves all people equally without regard for gender or sexual orientation
Same-sex love is holy love, and a gift from God
Marriage is a rite that should be available to all couples
Your Dean and Campus Chaplains commit to:
Welcoming same-sex couples to have their marriages blessed in the Strand Chapel and Guy’s Chapel
Campaigning for equal marriage within the Church of England
Living out a faith that sees God’s love as extravagantly inclusive
We are able to offer a service of blessing on your marriage in either of our two Chapels, and will do so with joy and in a way tailored to you so as to make your day as special and meaningful as possible. Please email us with your interest and requirements.
Also: Read the letter to the Bishops which adds the voices of the Dean and Campus Chaplains to the many who are urging the Church of England to move forward with marriage equality (October 2022).
