For ministers who have a marriage license granted to them through Churches of Christ in SA & NT Inc, you are required to follow the latest Guidelines on the Marriage Act 1961 for Marriage Celebrants. You can also find the Marriage Act 1961 here. This covers all aspects of law relating to solemnising marriages.

You can find Marriage Rites for Churches of Christ Ministers in Australia here. This is the policy document from the Council of Churches of Christ in Australia that governs how you are to conduct Marriage Ceremonies using the Rites of Churches of Christ.

A checklist for completing marriage documents is provided in the attachment below for your convenience.
