We welcome all enquiries for baptisms (ie christenings), from people of all ages! Baptism is a sign of God’s love for us and of our wish to try and follow him on the journey of life. Many people nowadays get baptised as an adult because they want to express their own commitment of faith. However, we also continue to conduct many baptisms for infants and children.
If you contact us one of our team will arrange to meet with you to talk about what baptism means, arrange a date and other practical details, and answer any questions you have. Baptisms can take place either at one of our regular Sunday morning services or as a separate service.
The first point of contact is our church office on 01297 23656
or email email@example.com

A Funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on Earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. This can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.
Everyone is entitled to a funeral, burial service or to have their ashes interred in a service led by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not.
If you would like to know more please contact the church office on 01297 23656 or
Some people find planning a funeral with family and friends helps in their grieving. Perhaps you already know something of what your loved one wanted. You may even have planned the service together some time ago. If you are uncertain the minister who will lead the service can help you choose suitable readings, hymns and prayers. If they did not know your loved one well, they will want to talk with you to build up a picture of the person’s life.

Finding a venue is an important part of planning for a wedding, but choosing your local Church means so much more than just getting married in a historic building.
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 at the start of married life. You will also have the support and guidance of the church minister as you prepare for your big day.
We want to make your wedding personal and memorable for you. Churches are special places and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can’t get anywhere else:
A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God’s blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.
The minister has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the minister, your wedding can be made personal, memorable and meaningful.
You are entitled to get married in your parish church or a church that you attend regularly. You may also be able to get married in another church with which you or your family have a strong connection.
Just like reception venues, churches can get booked up a long way in advance, and it is also necessary to make sure that a minister is available to take the marriage ceremony. If you are interested in getting married in one of our churches, please get in touch with us as soon as you know the date that you hope to have your wedding.
