Coronavirus Precautions and Weddings -

As of Thursday 5th. November we will not be able to conduct Weddings in Church except under very exceptional circumstances. This will be the case until at least the beginning of December, when we hope things may allow them once more in Church.


Those Marriages that are still possible in Church would need to be very simple services that fulfil the legal and spiritual minimum requirements, with just 15 persons including those necessarily present - Minister, Bride, Groom and 2 witnesses - plus minimal congregation or guests.


We will be in contact with everyone who has weddings booked in the near future as soon as we can to consider what may be possible in each case. Thank you in the meantime for your patience and any problems please contact us.


All Saints, Pontefract is a lovely venue for a wedding, with a beautiful interior and surrounded by our grounds and the grand ruins of the original church, which was destroyed during the Civil War. 


If you wish to get Married at All Saints, Pontefract then please contact the Office on 01977 600230. The office is usually open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for a few hours from 10.30am so that you can book to come and meet us, usually on a Wednesday Evening between 6.00 and 6.30pm to begin the process - there is an answer=phone on this line so please leave a message if the 'phone is not answered.


In order to be married at All Saints you need either to live in the Parish of All Saints, Pontefract, or in the Parish of St. Giles with St. Marys.
