Alameda’s Christ Episcopal Church has announced that it will perform same-sex weddings.

The announcement came last week on the heels a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that opened the door to same-sex marriage in California.

“We are thrilled that our bishop has given us permission to conduct weddings for same sex couples,” the Rev. Thomas C. Jackson said. “In the first few days after the ruling, we’ve already heard from three couples who have been together for many years and are now considering marrying.”

“We require couples desiring to marry here to be members of this or some other Christian congregation or that they be open to exploring membership,” he added.

The church requires premarital counseling for couples who plan to marry; full marriage policies are available online at http://www.christchurchalameda.org/resour/weddings
