Protestant Churches in Tricity??

Hi there,
My friend is getting married in Poland, to a Polish man, she's Irish and Protestant (surprising I know! :-)).
I was wondering if anybody could help us find some Protestant churches that will do weddings on a Sunday in the Tricity (Gdansk, Gdynia, Sopot) area. If that is too difficult, maybe somebody could suggest a catholic church/priest that might agree to a wedding blessing (they will already have been legally married in Ireland). A lot of Catholic churches all over the world require couples to do a few weeks 'classes' with them before-hand, but if this can be avoided it would be best.

Thanks in advance

A few banknotes should solve the problem...

Thanks for your help guys. I have passed on the information to the couple, so hopefully they will find something suitable.
Here's to Poland! :-)

Cant work out why, if this guy who is getting married is Polish, he couldnt find these churces for himself. I'm sure some ppl on here just write for the sake of it

Or maybe some people write because they are helpful and like to do as much as they can for friends who are very busy organising other things and working and you may have found an alternative avenue of information that they haven't.

And there are obviously other people who like to write sarcastic comments for no other reason than to be rude and upset others.

I managed to get out of the (Catholic) classes cos I wasn't living in the country at the time. My wife had to go on her own.

What we did need was proof of baptism (and confirmation if you had it). Seems Protestantism (or at least CofE) gives you associate membership of RC. Problem is if you are Jewish or Muslim or something like that.

Not a problem in a Catholic church - they have always done it in the UK, don't see why Poland should be any different, Catholic church is Catholic church, right?

Such a cynic Doggie! But it's the same UK these days!
