Do you have a policy re weddings?

Further to the Church Order, has anyone formulated a policy or guideline to determine under what conditions a couple can be married in your church? Question came up in a Consistory meeting, thinking about past marriages between believers and non-believers who subsequently disappeared. What about facilities rentals?

Should wine or grape juice be served at Communion?

We currently serve both wine and grape juice, giving parishioners a choice. But we also have several AA groups that use our facility during the week, and know that they have an open invitation to worship with us. There are a couple of members who have strong objection to switching to all grape juice, so it would also be a pastoral issue to switch. Does the presence of wine in the communion tray offer too strong a temptation to a recovering alcoholic?
