Church of England Diocese of Manchester Christ Church, West Didsbury and St Christopher, Withington

Baptisms, weddings and funerals

BAPTISMS

We welcome new members into the family of the Church at Baptism and do this either in the main service at 11 a.m. or as a separate Baptism Service at 12 noon. Anyone who lives within the Parish or has a family connection with Christ Church or St. Christopher’s is able to come to arrange Baptism with us. We will be pleased to discuss Baptism and arrange a suitable date with you.


WEDDINGS

Many couples wish to make their vows in church before God and to ask for God’s blessing on their marriage. Anyone who lives in the Parish or has a significant connection with Christ Church or St. Christopher can choose to have their wedding in either of our churches. It is also sometimes possible for people who do not live in the parish, or who have been married before, to get married here. Please contact the clergy for more information. We will be pleased to discuss your wedding with you and arrange dates and times.


FUNERALS

The church is here for everyone to offer God’s love, care and support at the time of bereavement. The Funeral Director will contact the clergy at your request or you can contact the clergy direct if you prefer, to make arrangements for a church service. Our clergy are also able to conduct funeral services in Crematoriums and Cemetery Chapels and at the graveside.
