Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals
Baptism is the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for you and all your friends and family.
If you are thinking about having your child baptised, please contact Rev’d Helen who will be more than happy to speak to you about it. Generally, people are baptised in their local parish church, however if you have a strong family link to a particular church within our benefice you may be able to hold the baptism there.
There is no fee for a baptism, however should you require a Certificate of Baptism, there is a cost of £14.
The Church of England provide further information and advice here.
If you would like to get married in one of our churches, please contact Rev’d Helen. Generally people marry in their local parish church, however if a different church has a special significance to you or a strong family connection you may be able to marry there.
The cost of marrying in church can vary depending on what you choose for your service. However, there are some compulsory costs which are detailed here. This basic legal fee covers the cost of the vicar, the church, the calling of Banns, a Banns certificate and administration costs. These are all things that can be discussed with Rev’d Helen when you meet to plan your service.
Further information about planning your big day can be found here .
The death of someone close to us is not an easy part of life. It can feel confusing, exhausting or painful and finding a way to mark the end of a life may seem like an overwhelming task.
The church is always there, particularly during this difficult time to support you. From the moment you contact us, through to planning a funeral and any support you may need during or after it, we are there for as long as you need. Please contact Rev’d Helen to discuss what you would like.
