Wanstead United Reformed Church has become the first church in Redbridge to be registered to conduct same-sex marriages.

Church members agreed to the change some time ago but have now received official confirmation that the Nightingale Lane venue can conduct ceremonies for all couples.

“It is important to us to be able to welcome all members of the community on equal terms. We also hope this will provide an opportunity for couples currently unable to marry in their own churches,” said a spokesperson.
