A HUDDERSFIELD church is getting loved up for Valentine’s Day.
St Philip’s Church, Birchencliffe, is holding a ‘Celebration of Love and Marriage’ ceremony on Sunday at 10.30am for married couples and soon-to-be-wed couples.
The service includes the chance for married couples to renew their marriage vows – and a wedding cake at the end.
Bishop of Wakefield the Rt Rev Stephen Platten is encouraging other churches to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
Rt Rev Platten said: “Valentine’s Day shouldn’t just be left to the greetings card and flower shops.
“This Sunday I urge churches to seize the opportunity to do something special to show their communities and their congregations their support for marriage and use these new resources to organise a special service.”
