At Barwell Methodist Church, we believe that the church ceremony is the most important part of one of the best days of your life. We’ll do everything we can to make it extra special for you, and to make your guests feel at home.

The Marriage Service
Our service is based on the time-honoured Christian ceremony, with either modern or traditional words as you choose, following one of the orders in our prayer books. The service is very flexible, and you will be able to choose your own readings, hymns and music, with help from the minister.
If you have been married abroad, or at another venue, and wish to have a Christian ceremony to seal your vows, we offer a blessing service, with prayers for you as a newly-married couple. We can also do a service for the renewal of vows, if you wish to celebrate or recapture that special moment after a number of years of marriage.
How many guests?
Our church can comfortably seat 120 people, with room for an additional 20–30, should we need it.
How much does it cost?
Prices may vary from year to year, but the standard cost of a wedding here will be around £200, including fees for the minister, organist and a steward to help things run smoothly on the day. Please speak to the minister if the cost may be a problem for you.
It is possible that we may be able to provide the flower arrangements for the church, at very reasonable prices, depending on your choice of colours and availability of flowers. A rough price guide can be made available. You can, of course, make your own arrangements.
Printed order of service
Our church office can produce a good quality order of service, at a very reasonable cost, or if you’re designing one yourself, we can help with what to put in it.
Our church hall can also be used for small reception parties, although we do not permit alcohol on the premises. We can also recommend other local venues.
As with all things, if you have any further questions, or wish to visit to have a look at the venue, please don’t hesitate to ask, or just come along. Everyone is always welcome.
Rev. David Haseldine
