Bev and I were planning to get married, but although we are both part of the family at St. Margaret’s Church we new we couldn’t actually get married in the Church as I had been divorced. However it was very important to both of us to have God’s blessing on our marriage. We discussed this with Bob, the vicar, for a blessing service in Church, and he agreed. We felt it important to have our marriage and future lives together blessed by God and the Blessing Service was a wonderful way to do this.
On the 184 February 2000 after a marriage ceremony at the Registry Office, we went to the Church for a Blessing Service. It was a fabulous celebration, with songs, prayers and readings shared with about 150 of our friends and family. The service was so special, the love of God filled the Church and we felt truly blessed.
