|SEEKING GOD'S BLESSING
Marriage is a gift of God in creation and a means of his grace.
The Chaplain of Christ Church writes: “Over the years, I have been approached by couples asking to affirm their marriage vows in the presence of God and to have their marriages blessed anew for different reasons—mainly out of thankfulness for each other, knowing that God who is with us is also for us ready to strengthen us through the ‘lavishing of his grace upon us’ (Ephesians 1:8). As Christian marriage testifies, we do not have to do everything in our own strength as we navigate life in communion with God and our spouse. Knowing that some are more ready and able to put themselves forward to ask for such a blessing at significant anniversaries 10, 25, 40, and 50, Christ Church is offering an opportunity for all who are married to join us for a short a service in the church followed by a reception with drinks, nibbles, live jazz, and dancing at a nearby venue. The evening will end around 19.15 so that you can go on to enjoy a night on the town.
