    My partner and I are wishing to get married at Barking Abbey - St Margarets Church this year and would like to know what the procedure would be? My parents were married in March1964 at the church and I would be honoured to get married their and to follow in their footsteps. I moved away from the area last year but the church and the surrounding area holds very special memories to me. My parents have since passed away.

    Many thanks

      I want to get my children christened but can’t make the times on a Friday, is there another way to book a christening? Thank you

    My husband and I got married 40 years ago this year at St. Margarets on 1st June. I am having my wedding and engagement ring made bigger and its the first time my wedding ring has come off since we were married. Do you do blessings as I would really like to have something special when I put my ring back on.

    I look forward to hearing from you

      It says it’s in moderation. Is it possible you could tell me when I may hear ?
