Christenings & Baptisms
Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in one of our churches. During the christening service your child will be baptised and with the support of the church, you and godparents; your child begins an amazing journey of faith. And if you were not baptised as a child, you may be considering as a teenager or adult to make this commitment – whatever led you to this point, baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives.
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful, just as you want it to be.
Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England between a man and a woman take place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church.

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world.
We’ll always be here to help you through one of life’s most difficult times. A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service, for as long as it’s needed. Services can be held in Crematoria, at the graveside, and of course in church itself. You can read more on The Church of England funerals website
This is a service to confirm the faith of baptism, especially for anyone who was baptised as a child and their parents and Godparents made those promises for them. You will be invited to make a public declaration that you are committing your life to following Jesus.
