Blessing of a Same Sex Civil Marriage at St Leonard’s

We are delighted that the Church of England agreed in February 2023 that parish churches should be permitted to offer services of blessing for those who have entered a same sex civil marriage. We are awaiting the wording of these services and when available we will  joyfully offer such services. Please contact the Parish Office for further details.

If you are looking for an excellent local venue  for your wedding reception we are delighted to recommend the Streatham Space project, details here:  SSP

Banns of Marriage

Before a wedding takes place in the Church of England, banns need to be read in the parish where each of you lives, as well as in the church in which you are to be married if that is somewhere else.

Do you live in the parish of St Leonard, Streatham? If you are unsure which parish you live in, check with our parish map or go to A Church Near You and click on “Search by Postcode or Place”.

For more information and to arrange reading of banns, please email us in the St Leonard’s Parish Office.
