This prayer may be said

Those who wish to renew their vows stand and say together:

Heavenly Father, we thank you for all your blessings to us. We thank you for all things that have enriched our lives, for all people who have blessed us with their love and friendship. We thank you for Christian marriage, for our homes and families and friends. Give us, O Lord, this further blessing, that as we have freely received, so we may freely give. Confirm and strengthen our marriages, that our homes may be to us, and to friend and stranger, places of joy and gladness. We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Renewal of Vows:

Minister: Do you here, in the presence of God and this congregation renew and affirm the vows you made to each other when you bound yourselves together in holy matrimony?

We do.

Minister: Will you seek to nurture and daily affirm your love and commitment to each other in the light of the love that God has revealed to us in Jesus Christ?

We will.

The minister says to Mick

Minister: Mick, will you renew the vows you made to Chris on your marriage day?

Will you love her, comfort her, honour and protect her, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

He answers

I will.

The minister says to Chris

Chris, will you renew the vows you made to Mick on your marriage day? Will you love him, comfort him, honour and protect him, and, forsaking all others, be faithful to him as long as you both shall live?

She answers

I will.

Mick and Chris face each other.

Mick takes Chris’ right hand in his.

Mick, please repeat these words after me:

I, Mick, renew my promise to you, Chris,

to have and to hold from that day forward;

for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law.

In the presence of God I make this vow.

They turn their hands over

Chris, please repeat these words after me:

I, Chris, renew my promise to you, Mick ,

to have and to hold from this day forward;

for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer,

in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part; according to God’s holy law.

In the presence of God I make this vow.

Minister: Mick, please repeat after me:

Chris, with this ring I renew the vow I made to you, on our wedding day in which I promised

that I would honour you with my body,

that I would give all that I am to you and

that I would share all that I have with you, within the love of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Minister: Chris, please repeat after me:

Mick, with this ring I renew the vow I made to you on our wedding day in which I promised
