The churches in the United Benefice play an important part in those significant life events that take place within our communities. We would love to hear from you to see how we can be involved with you in these important stages of life.
Baptism is the sign and symbol of becoming a Christian. We baptise people of all ages who wish to mark the start of their Christian journey with baptism.
If you live in our parishes and wish to be baptised yourself, or have your child baptised (or both), our Rector would be delighted to talk with you about it. Please fill in the enquiry form below. Baptism is an expression of who we are as church. As a result, baptisms always take place as a part of our normal Sunday morning worship.
If you wish to be married at one of our beautiful churches, our Rector would love to discuss the options. Please fill in the enquiry form below. It is always a joy and a privilege to celebrate people’s love and commitment to each other, and we hope that we can share your special day with you.
There are legal rules concerning weddings, and the Church of England’s official website www.yourchurchwedding.org can take you through some of them. Please don’t be disheartened if you find you do not currently have a “qualifying connection” with the church in which you wish to be married. Several couples have joined us regularly on Sunday mornings in the months before their Big Day. Not only have they gained a “qualifying connection” but they have also found that they have developed a deeper connection with the church, making the location even more special on their wedding day.
You do not have to have been a churchgoer to have your funeral in church, and it is always a privilege for us to take funerals and help give your loved one a “good send-off”.
A Christian funeral is full of hope. As Christians, we trust that our Lord Jesus, through His death and resurrection, is able to offer a place in heaven to all who wish to join Him there. We would be honoured to be able to help with your loved one’s funeral. It’s an opportunity to thank God for their life, whilst acknowledging that we will miss them.
