The policy at St John's Stoke is that those whose first marriage has ended in divorce, even if they live in the parish, may not be married in the Church. However a 'Service of prayer and Dedication after a Civil Marriage' (Wedding Blessing) is available.
A wedding blessing takes place when a Civil Marriage has taken place and a couple wish to dedicate their marriage to God. Wedding blessings take place at St John's Stoke based on the usual residency requirements.
