Our First Wedding Re-enacted February 12, 2017 at 9:45 am

Christ Church Oxford Centre turns 150 this year.

To continue our celebrations on February 12, 2017 at 9:45 am, we are re-enacting the first wedding in the parish.  It took place on February 10, 1876 between Charles William Hawden and Isabella Margaret Lampman.  If any of you know of any cause or impediment why these two persons should not be joined in holy matrimony, you are a bit late but come anyway !

The Re-enactment will be in the form for the Solemnization of Holy Matrimony in the 1867 Book of Common Prayer.  A far cry from today’s ceremonies, so come and relive a bit of history.

Then a fabulous lunch with a menu circa 1876 will be served.

We invite you to join us in the celebration.
