Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God1 John 4:7
Weddings can be conducted in either Newbattle or Mayfield/Easthouses Church. If you live in the Parish or have a strong connection to this area then feel free to contact the minister to chat about your plans.
Weddings can be conducted in either of our church buildings on any day of the week, other than a Sunday. It is worth booking well in advance for at certain times of the year there can be a great demand upon our ministers’ time.
Weddings need to be given much thought and we will seek to guide you through the legal, practical and worship aspects of the day. As a marriage has legal standing you will need to make separate contact with the Registrar’s Office at Dalkeith (https://www.midlothian.gov.uk/info/640/birth_marriage_and_death/47/arranging_a_marriage) to obtain a Marriage Schedule.
It is your responsibility to bring the Marriage Schedule on the day (or better still at rehearsal). Without a Marriage Schedule the marriage service cannot take place.
Christian marriage seeks to affirm the worth of you as individuals and as a couple. Words of love and commitment will fill the service. We hope our services are joyous occasions. Whilst we are more than happy to help you in putting your own personalised service together, perhaps by including friends and musicians, a church service is a Christian service within the love of God.

If you have been married in a civil ceremony but would like to have your marriage blessed in a special church service, this is possible. Contact the minister.
