Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
The Church is here for everyone, whether or not they are regular churchgoers. Many people turn to the Church at significant
milestones in their life. Whether that is a happy event such as a wedding or
the birth of a child, or a sad one such as the death of a loved friend or
family member, we’re here to help, so please get in touch.
Your child is precious to you and precious to God, and you may wish to mark the birth with a special service of celebration. We offer two alternatives: a simple service of thanksgiving for the birth of a child or a christening service which includes baptism, marking the start of a journey of faith. We would love to welcome you and your family to one of our churches, so please get in touch.
Are you planning to get married? Congratulations! Whether you plan to get married in a couple of years or in just a
few months, we would be delighted to share your special day with you, and help you through the process of booking and
planning your ceremony, so please get in touch.
You can find out all about getting married in church at the Church of England’s special weddings website. There’s a ceremony planner, FAQs and lots of useful resources to help you plan your special day.
When somebody you love dies, there’s a lot to think about and it can feel overwhelming at the time. Our Ministry Team is here to support you in your loss, so please do get in touch.
A funeral marks the end of a person’s life here on earth, as family
and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and
commend the person into God’s keeping. There are some useful resources on the Church of England
website which may help you to start thinking about the service you would like for your
family member or friend.
