Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals

Baptisms:

In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young children; this is sometimes known as christening.

Baptism is a ‘sacrament’ (holy ritual to symbolise grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.

There is no charge for a Baptism: it is a free gift.

If you would like to arrange a baptism please come to the parish office on a Thursday evening between 7-8pm or contact the parish office.

Here is some guidance on fees.

Funerals

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. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.

Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. We are here for you when somebody close to you dies. If you would like some support in your time of grief and/or want us to be the place you have the funeral then do ask your funeral director to get in touch with the parish office.

The vicar will help you to plan the service and speak to you about how you would like your loved one to be remembered.

We have a book of remembrance in the church where we record the names of people who have had funerals in our church.

We also have an annual service where we remember those who have died in the parish in the past year. Please ask the parish office for details of when the next service will be.

This section includes information on planning a funeral and the funeral service. Plus a selection of comforting psalms and prayers.
