3 Special life events Baptisms, Weddings (and Banns), and Funerals

We are delighted to share with you in significant events in your life and in your family.

Baptisms are held in the 10am Sunday service. We don't have a specific week in the month that we do them but are happy to negotiate a mutually convenient date. The best way to make contact is to come to a 10am service and catch the Vicar (Priscilla) afterwards.

Weddings are a wonderful occasion, we would very much like to talk to you about getting married here in this beautiful church. Again the easiest thing is to come along and catch the Vicar on a Sunday when an appointment to book can be made.

If you aren't getting married here, Banns are normally read in the month prior to the wedding on the first three sundays of the month. Booking is a simple process and again most easily done after church. You need to bring evidence of identity and address and the fee. (2018- £43, 2019-£44).

For any of these of course email or phone Priscilla first if you prefer.

Funerals can be a difficult and complex time and we very much want to offer you support to have a service which both reflects the life of the person who has died and which offers a perspective of hope and the love of God when things are hard. Usually bookings are made via funeral directors, but if you wish to make contact directly first that is absolutely fine. Either telephone or email is good and we attempt to respond as quickly as possible.
