Baptisms and Weddings

For centuries the Church has played an important role at key moments in people's lives.

Baptism (also called Christening)

Baptism marks a person's entry into the journey of Christian faith. Infants or adults can be baptised. 

If you are looking for baptism as an adult or for your children then please come and see us at one of our services. We ask that parents attend two services and our baptism preparation evening before booking a firm date. For adults seeking baptism we arrange separate meetings.

There is no fee for baptism.

We also offer thanksgiving services for those who would prefer this option.

Weddings and Dedication Services

In Christian Marriage a couple declare their love for each other and ask for God's blessing on their life together. If you are looking to be married at St Chad's, Roseworth or St John the Baptist church, Durham then please contact the Rev'd Jennie Sharpe. We will check that you fulfil the Church of England requirements to be married here and look at suitable dates and costs.
