Registering a building as a place of worship

You can apply to Barnet Register Office to have any building in Barnet certified as a place of worship. The person who acts as 'minister' or ‘trustee’ must complete Form 76. They'll need to complete two copies of this form and return them to the Register Office together with a sketch of the floor plan identifying:

  • which rooms will be used for worship
  • the times when the building will be used for worship
  • include a cheque or postal order to cover the statutory fee

For information on relevant fees contact us on 020 8359 6400.

Registering a building of worship as a place of marriage

If the person acting a ‘minster’ or ‘trustee’ decide they wish the place of worship to become a place where marriages can take place, they'll need to complete Form 78.

Form 78 requires you to obtain the signatures of 20 separate householders who say that the building is their usual place of worship and that they would like it to be registered as a place of marriage. You'll need to send this completed form to the Barnet Register office, enclosing a cheque or postal order to cover the statutory fee.

We will then send the information to the General Register Office for approval. We will write and let you know when you have been successful. You will need to advertise the building as a place of worship in the local newspaper before it can be used as a place of marriage.
