Life's Events

Baptism

Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church. During the christening service your baby will be baptized. There are around 10,000 babies and children baptized in the Church of England every month. We also welcome adults who want to be baptized. Your child is precious to you and precious to God. At baptism you make a decision to start your child on a journey of faith. The church and the godparents support the family and the child in this decision. If you would like to have a baptism in your church, please contact the churchwarden: their contact details can be found under Contact Us.

Weddings

Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England between a man and a woman take place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You're welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. If you would like to hold a wedding in your parish church, please contact the churchwarden: their contact details can be found under Contact Us.

Funerals

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief and give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world. To hold a funeral in your church, please contact the churchwarden: contact details can be found under Contact Us.
