Civil partnership ceremonies

The question

Hello Jan
I am wishing to celebrate a civil partnership in the next year. As a gay couple can
we have a service in church?


The answer

Hi Graham

Unfortunately we can't offer you this service at the moment.

A civil partnership is the same as a civil wedding - no religious content.

If you have a good relationship with a minister then he or she may agree to a blessing service - it's certainly worth having a chat.

You haven't said where you live but the Wedding Show at the G-MEX in Manchester from 23-24 February is the UK Wedding & Civil Partnership exhibition in 2008. So you might find some good resources there.

Warm regards
