From the "About Us" page:

Quote:
The International Association for Religious Freedom is a registered charity based in the United Kingdom which has the aim of working for freedom of religion and belief at a global level.

Encouraging interfaith dialogue and tolerance is part of this agenda, and we are proud of a 100-year-plus history in this work. We have over 90 affiliated member groups in approximately 25 countries, from a wide range of faith traditions including Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Shintoism and Sikhism, among others.

With member organisations, regional co-ordinators, and national chapters around the world, the International Association for Religious Freedom is well placed to obtain local perspectives on religious freedom concerns and issues.

The government does recognise our ordination. It just makes rules about who can do legal weddings. A number of smaller churches have the same issue. Hence some get a registry wedding and then a blessing according to their faith afterwards.

That's what I meant - the governing body will not recognize approve marriages etc...

It is a case of poor religious freedom here. You can get recognised legally if you have property to display your marriage records and you get accepted by the registrar. As most of us cannot afford such property, it all points to a club for rich groups (imo). I know that the main churches like the RC and CofE have the training in their ministry training. They do not have to worry about property because they have so much of it.
