Baptism services are normally held on Sunday afternoons.

It is not permitted for same sex couples to be married in the Church of England at present, however we are happy to discuss with you the possibility of a service of celebration if you are already married or in a civil partnership.
Christians have always believed that there is hope in death as in life, and that there is new life in Christ over death. Even those who share such faith find that there is a real sense of loss at the death of a loved one. We will each have had our own experiences of their life and death, with different memories and different feelings of love, grief and respect.
The funeral service is an occasion to express our faith and our feelings as we say farewell, to acknowledge our loss and our sorrow, and to reflect on our own mortality. The church offers funeral services as a way of providing support and consolation to those who mourn.
If you would like to talk to a member of clergy about arranging a funeral service or about a bereavement that you have experienced, please contact the Parish Office by calling 01270 625268.
