Thinking of Marriage?

YCK Chapel only conducts the Holy Matrimony for baptized members of the church.

Here are some important steps to take:

  • Talk to the Family Life Ministry (FLM) Leader at least 8 months, but preferably 9 – 12 months, before the wedding.
  • At the meeting, the FLM leader will want to
    • verify the spiritual and marital status of the couple (single or ever married, baptism & church membership, etc.)
    • explain what’s involved in a church wedding (eg. criteria for church wedding, registration of marriage, pre-marital preparation, etc).
    • firm up the date and venue of the wedding.
    • arrange to undergo pre-marital counseling with a couple of Marriage Mentors (allocated by FLM).
  • The couple will then meet the Solemnising pastor to
    • learn about God’s design for marriage and sexual purity.
    • the flow of the Holy Matrimony
  • The couple will meet their marriage mentors for their pre-marital counseling sessions. In one of the session, they will go through a Taylor Johnson Temperament Analysis (TJTA). This is recommended but subject to availability of a counsellor.
  • Final meeting with soleminising pastor happens at the end of the pre-marital course to go through the wedding vow and to prepare for the wedding day.
