Life Events

We are closely monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and its impact upon our church life and activities. In particular, we are following all advice given by the Church of England daily.

At present, Weddings are possible but with only 15 guests. Funerals can also take place, this time with 30 friends and family in attendence. For Baprisms (Christenings) please contact the office on 01335 343825.

 

As a church we want to be there for people at all times of life.  

However, at key times our church can be involved in a special way, with services for the birth of a child, with weddings and with funerals.

Baptism and Thanksgivings

We regularly offer baptisms and thanksgiving services. We help you to decide which service is more suitable, and we want to make it an enjoyable and accessible experience. Click here for more information on Baptisms and Christenings, and here for a booking form.

Weddings

Congratulations! We love celebrating weddings in our beautiful church. The website  yourchurchwedding.org will help you to understand some of the rules surrounding church weddings (we offer support and guidance through the legalities). We will work with you to make your big day beautiful, meaningful and a wondeful celebration of your love and relationship. Click here for more information on Weddings, and here for a booking form.

Funerals

We have a team of clergy who regularly take funerals either in church or in crematoria. We work with funeral directors and families to celebrate the life of loved ones and offer Christian hope for the future. We are keen to support families at a difficult time by offering ongoing pastoral support and twice a year we invite bereaved families into church for a memorial service.
