We'd love to hear from you

Can we help?

We have many enquiries about christenings, weddings, funerals, wedding blessings and so on. Often people ask the same question, ‘Can we have the service, even though we are not members of the church?’ To which the answer is usually ‘Yes.’ Because of the way the parish system works, if you are resident in our parish you are entitled to be baptised, married (for the first time) or have your funeral in church. Even if you don’t live in the parish (and about a third of our congregation doesn’t) we would be very pleased to help you if we can.

Church, and the help we provide, is not a members-only club. It is open to and available to everyone who needs it. Jesus didn't ask if people were in his gang before he broke bread with them or healed them, taught them or ministered to them...and neither do we. The parish system means we have a duty of care for, and serve everyone.
