Wanstead church becomes first in Redbridge to host gay weddings

Wanstead United Reformed Church on Nightingale Lane has become the first church in Redbridge to be registered to conduct same sex marriages.

The church members agreed to taking the step some time ago but have now received the official confirmation that all couples who wish to have a wedding in a Christian ceremony may do so.

The church’s lead minister, the Reverend Dr Tessa Henry-Robinson said: “It is a proud moment for us here at Wanstead URC to be the first to bring this good news to its community.”  Church Secretary Grace Smith added, “It is important to us to be able to welcome all members of the local community on equal terms. We also hope this will provide an opportunity for couples currently unable to marry in their own churches.”

  1. This is not Christianity any more. Another nail in the coffin further diluting and dismantling the key tenets of the faith and making it up as you like… has become a joke. ☹️
