….and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13)

Congratulations on your decision to get married! An exciting and happy time lies ahead and there is so much to think about. If you’re wondering how to make a start on all the planning and preparations for the service, this page, and the links to other important sites will guide you through the first steps.

All three Churches in our Parish offer a beautiful, unique and meaningful location for you to make your vows to each another, before your family and friends and in the eyes of God.


Whatever stage in your planning you are at, we want to help and support you.

When a couple marry they make lifelong vows to each other in the presence of God. In the wedding service, we celebrate their love for each other and give thanks to God who is the source of all love. The rings that are the symbol of commitment are blessed, the couple are blessed, and the ceremony ends with the blessing of all those gathered to support them.


There are clear rules in the Church in Wales about who may get married in a given Church. It isn’t as simple as ‘selecting’ the Church nearest your reception venue. You are required to have a qualifying connection with the Parish: however, If you or your fiancé live in the parish, or have grown up in the Parish, or if your parents or grandparents were married or Christened in the Parish then you will probably qualify to be married in one of our Churches. Please contact the Vicar for further details. And check out the Church in Wales website which provides detail about Preparing for Marriage.

The Pentyrch Churches of The Garth Ministry Area is a simple, joyful and inclusive Christian community. The worship, prayer and events we offer reflect our love of Jesus and all God’s people, near and far. Whatever your background, whatever you may be feeling, however often or infrequently, we would love you to join us.

“See I have written your name on the palm of my hands” Isaiah 49:16 


In our Ministry Area we work hard to think creatively about our worship, so that it can hold the traditional and modern in a wonderful balance, thereby igniting a sense of God’s grace, joy and hope amongst us all. 

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe you have received it, and it will be yours.” 

Mark 11:24
