Episcopal Church services are liturgical and the Book of Common Prayer is used for all services allowing you to follow along and participate through the services. Our style of worship is diverse, dignified and beautiful to both the eyes and the ears often accompanied by the African drums, keyboard and piano. It blends the culture and music of people from Africa, the Caribbean...
Christ the King offers all the support and assistance possible in making your wedding a joyful and rewarding experience. It is our belief that in a Celebration and Blessing of Marriage, the Christian family gathers to celebrate and ask God’s blessing upon the commitment by which a man and a woman pledge a life-long union in the creation of a healthy relationship. The reason for making this public and solemn covenant in the Church is to recognize that such a relationship is built only with the help of God.
Weddings are usually held on Saturdays, between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Dates should be set at least 90 days in advance. A License will need to be obtained from Harris County at least 30 days before the marriage.
The marriage ceremony is a worship service. Marriage is a sacrament of the Church and takes place in the context of worship. Music, dress, decorations, readings and photographs should all be appropriate for a traditional worship service. Holy Communion is usually a part of the service but it is optional.
The Episcopal Church requires pre-marital counseling. The priest will generally schedule at least three meetings with the couple for this purpose.
Christ the King has a single comprehensive wedding fee that incorporates a clergy honorarium. Please visit the Church or call for details.
