Christenings, Weddings and Funerals

There are certain times in our lives that are very important.  These can be happy times of celebration or sad times when we have to say goodbye to a loved one.  Your church is able to help you plan these important times together. Contact us to find out more.

Christenings (also known as Baptism)

All ages can be christened/baptised.  At St Katharine's we are here to help you prepare and plan.

If you are a parent  who would like your child to be baptised then we want to support you to prepare to start an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family. 


Congratulations on your engagement. 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  

St Katharine's is an ideal little church for a wedding. Fees are set by the Church of England and change yearly, but we can create an affordable and tailored made package for you.  Ring us to discuss the options and we can plan the perfect wedding for you.

Renewal of Wedding Vows 

Have you ever though about renewing your wedding vows?  This could be for an anniversary or special occasion or at any time.  


A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping.  A Christian funeral also celebrates the truth that death is not the end, but those who die in the faith of Christ have eternal life. 

Everyone is entitled to a Church Service in their local Parish Church. This can be taken by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. 

Similarly, anyone can ask for their local vicar to officiate at a funeral at a Crematorium or Woodland Burial site. Contact your funeral director to begin preparations or get in touch to discuss further.
