To be married in St Mary’s Church, Rushden, normally one or both of the couple need to reside within the parish boundaries (see the link:   Rushden St Mary Parish ) or have a ‘Qualifying Connection’ to the parish.

These qualifying connections need to be confirmed by the Rector, but might include if either of you:

  • was baptised in the parish
  • was confirmed in the parish
  • resided within the parish for six months at a previous time
  • attended public worship in the parish for at least six months
  • have a parent whom – during your life – resided and/or attended public worship in the parish for at least six months
  • have a parent or grandparent who was married in the parish
