Life's Events

West Norfolk Priory Group


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. 


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. 


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 arrange a baptism (christening), wedding or funeral please contact the churchwarden of your church, or the Mission Administrator Louise Vigus: email 07596 707469
