Did you get married in this Sealand church? – Daily Post North Wales

A Sealand church is seeking 164 couples who have tied the knot there over the last 50 years.

St Bartholomews Church wants to bring the brides and grooms together as part of celebrations to mark 150 years on Old Sealand Road.

Couples are invited to a special service on Mothering Sunday, on March 26.

Stephen Smith, one of the organisers of a special weddings exhibition at St Bartholomews, said: Many of the couples will be in other parts of the country and world, and their circumstances may have changed, but we would welcome all who attended marriage services in the church.

Our biggest task is contacting as many of them as we can.

Sealand has changed dramatically over the years, but St Bartholomews has been there as a beacon of hope for all its community during the significant times in their lives.

We have big plans for this to continue in the future and want to involve as many people as possible in the journey.

There will be refreshments at the exhibition showing weddings over the last 150 years and how they were celebrated and marked.

St Bartholomews Church opened its doors on October 15 1867.

Event organisers said although the congregation may be small a comprehensive programme of events designed to appeal to people of all ages is still run.

A grant from Cadwyn Clwyd allowed new lighting to be installed and the congregation is now working towards upgrading the heating and building kitchen and toilets facilities.

The 150th anniversary of St Bartholomews will be marked with events throughout 2017 and includes the special weekend exhibition and service on the weekend of March 25/26.
