Product description
The 2008 Marriage Measure has allowed couples to be much more flexible in their choice of church in which to get married. As well as helping churches get to grips with the 'nuts and bolts' of this legislation, Welcoming Marriage helps churches make the most of the new opportunities. Topics include: making your church welcoming to prospective wedding couples; working with other churches to provide marriage preparation to couples who are marrying elsewhere; turning marriage into a mission opportunity; best practice and areas for improvement in church weddings, as highlighted by recently married couples; 'the world of weddings' - helping clergy understand the current wedding market and what motivates couples today; comprehensive coverage of the new legislation and how it impacts on each church.
