Life Events

The churches are here for you at all stages of your life.  We hold baptisms, weddings, funerals and memorial services.  Marking your life events, and those of your loved ones, in a church makes them extra special.   

Baptisms

We are delighted to welcome both children and adults to Christian baptism.

Baptisms of children are held in the main Sunday meetings. They are a way to celebrate a child’s birth, thank God for them and commit as parents to raise the child in the Christian faith.  We want to support parents as they bring up their children to follow Jesus and we invite you to talk to us about the kind of baptism service you would like for your child.

You are never too old to take the step of baptism!   It symbolises the new life that Christians enter into through Jesus’ death and resurrection, and it is a powerful statement of faith and commitment. If you think the time is right for you to get baptised, we would love to talk it through with you. Please contact us for more information.

Weddings

We very much welcome people who would like to be married at one of the churches.

Weddings in the Church of England are an opportunity to make a commitment to your partner in the presence of your friends and family and before God. You will also have the support and guidance of the church minister as you prepare for your big day. 

To enquire about holding your wedding in any of our churches, please contact the church office.  We will do everything we can to ensure your special day is all you could wish for!

​Funerals and Thanksgiving

The clergy of the parish are experienced in helping families to deal with the trauma of death and loss, and they will help you to arrange an appropriate service – whether that is a Funeral or a Memorial Service.

We can, and want to help before the point of death too –  we would much prefer to be called during times of serious illness when spiritual questions and anxieties can become particularly prominent in patients and their families.

Support before and at the time of death is what we all want for ourselves and our loved ones. Often the thoughtful, prayerful company of a member of the clergy or a trained visitor can help to guide people through challenging and uncharted waters as their life, or the life of their loved-one, draws to a close.

 If you would like to discuss a visit, a Funeral or a Memorial Service please contact the  Office.
