Baptism, Marriage, and Funerals

Baptism & Christening:

We offer baptism, sometimes known as Christening, to anyone living in our town and villages. Usually if adults are being baptised, this will also involve confirmation either in the same service or at a later date. Baptisms for children are generally held at the main Services: 10am at St Mary’s Lydney, 10.30am in the Villages, or 4.30pm at Holy Trinity Primrose Hill. 


The ancient Parish Church of St Mary’s provides a fitting setting for a memorable occasion for any young couple starting their united life together. The more modern accommodation at Holy Trinity will also give the happy couple a bright send off into their married life.   Enquiries about marriages at St. Mary’s Church or Holy Trinity Primrose Hill should be made to Steve Longton, one of our churchwardens, via [email protected]

Renewal of Marriage Vows: 

This is a very meaningful service for those who may, for example, be celebrating a particular anniversary.
