Enquiries for Baptisms, Weddings, Blessings, Renewal of Vows, Funerals are Welcome from all who live in the parish.

 

Baptism

Baptism is a service in which children and adults are welcomed into membership of the church.  Most people are Baptised as babies but it is never too late!

Most parents want first of all to say thank you to God for their new baby.  This is not something the Baptism service does so we ask parents to bring their child for a Thanksgiving Service before we go ahead with Baptism.

There is a simple process of preparation and reflection that we ask parents to go through before the Baptism takes place.  A phone call to the Vicarage will get this process started.

Please see Guidance on Baptisms for more information.

 

Weddings

Anyone who lives in the parish and has not been married before has the right to get married in the Parish Church.  A simple phone call to the Vicarage is all it takes to arrange a meeting to book the wedding and get the legal process started.

It is sometimes possible, in exceptional circumstances, for a divorced person to be married again in church.  Again a simple phone call to the Vicarage is all it takes to begin looking at whether or not this is possible for you.

 

Please see Guidance on Weddings for more information.

 

Blessing of a Marriage

If you married elsewhere and would like your marriage blessed or have a special occasion for which you would like to renew your wedding vows, please give us a call.

 

Funerals

Please see Guidance for Funerals in Church Buildings 

We recognise how difficult this time is for anyone who has lost a loved one even though a funeral in church is now possible, you may wish to discuss with your vicar or minister the possibility of a memorial service at a date in the future where more people can be present.

Reverend Simon Boxall on 01782 562479
