What are you looking for?
Wherever you live, there is a Church of England church that is always there for you through life's biggest moments - and at other times too. If you'd like a special service, your church offers a warm welcome, friendship, advice and prayer beforehand, on the big day and all the years afterwards.
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful and spiritual just as you want it to be. Churches are special and unique places to get married in - the prayers, promises and the whole service of celebration become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond.
Anyone can get in touch with a church to find about having their child christened. During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.
A church will always be there to help you through one of life’s most difficult times. A Church of England-led funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service, for as long as it’s needed.
We believe and trust in one God, Father Son and Holy Spirit. Find out more about what it means to be a Christian here.
