Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

For centuries, people have marked important times in their lives in church, things like a birth of a child, their marriage, or more sadly the death of a loved one. Even if you don't usually come to church, we want to encourage you to come for these special times which your local parish church is here to provide.

Arranging Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals.

If you contact us about baptisms, weddings and funerals, you can be assured of a friendly and helpful response. If we can not fulfil your request ourselves, we promise to point you in the direction of another church which might be able to help you.

If you live within the parish boundary of Holy Apostles, Leicester, then it is usually a straightforward process to arrange a baptism, wedding or funeral in church.

If you do not live within the parish boundary but have a connection with the parish or the church, then please do contact us.

Baptism/Christening

Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God in the Christian faith which we hope will last a lifetime. We want to support and encourage you, and your child(ren), as we journey together in faith. Talk to our minister Jenny about a date. We can do a traditional baptism, for anyone, or for adults or older children if you feel it's appropriate we can arrange a baptism by "full immersion." If you feel that having a child "christened" is not the right thing to do we also offer services of dedication. Contact us for more information or come along to any service we have a family "Breakfast service on the 4th Sunday of the month at 9.15am in our hall with a free breakfast and very short informal family friendly service finished by 10.15am and all other Sunday services are at 10.30am which include our lively [email protected] activities for pre-school, and primary aged children, and last about an hour. 


Weddings

Our lovely church is the perfect setting for weddings, as well as celebratory services of prayer and/or blessings after a Civil Marriage. We will do all we can to make sure your special day is as joyous and memorable an occasion as possible. That includes supporting you in the preparations, both logistically as well as emotionally and spiritually.


Funerals

At this difficult time you may not be able to hold the funeral you would wish for at this time. We can offer a sympathetic ear and help you to have a memorial service if you would like at a later date for you and your family and friends to be able to honour and remember your loved one as you would wish to.
