Baptisms

Children
Maybe you would like your child / children to be baptised. If so, great! If you want to raise your children in the Christian faith and feel comfortable making the baptismal promises on their behalf, then we would love to prepare you and your family for this big step.

Adults
Many people grow up in the Church because they have been baptised as babies and brought up in a Christian family. That is not always the case. Increasing numbers of older people - from teenagers to great grandparents - are making their own decision to join the Church.

Weddings

A marriage service, wherever it is held, is a public declaration of love and commitment to your partner. Having decided you want a church wedding, the first thing to do is to fill in a form and then make an appointment to see the Rector with your completed form (don't worry if you can't complete all of it). As the established church, the Church of England gives everyone, with no former partner still living, the right to get married in their or their partner's parish church.

Funerals

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world, and to commend the person into God's keeping. The funeral service of the Church of England can be very short and quiet with only a few members of the family present or an occasion of great solemnity with music, hymns and a packed church.
