LIFE EVENTS

LIFE EVENTS

Major life events - baptisms, marriages & deaths - are important and we want to help and support you through them! Here you can find out more about them and who to contact for further details.

INFANT BAPTISMS & THANKSGIVINGS

We are always pleased to be asked to celebrate the birth of children and to welcome young children into God's familyThese celebrations are sometimes known as baptisms, thanksgivings, christenings or dedications.

We run a baptism course for those seeking to have their children baptised. Please contact the Office, for more information.

ADULT BAPTISMS & CONFIRMATIONS

We believe Jesus asks us to get baptised when we decide to follow him. Baptism is the service where those who have come to faith publicly declare themselves to be followers of Jesus and are welcomed into the church. 

We aim to hold one immersion baptism service a term, with confirmations taking place a few times a year with the Bishop. If you would like to find out more, please contact our Curate: David Bartram Torrance.

MARRIAGES

A wedding is one of life's great moments. It's a time of solemn promises as well as good wishes, celebration and happiness.

You will need a qualifying connection to get married here; details outlining these can be found here. If you need your banns read, our Parish Clerk: Jo Ladkin, will be able to help you with this. Simply send over an email or phone 023 8055 8234, introducing yourself with your address.

FUNERALS

We believe that there is hope in death as in life and that death is part of a journey into God's presence for those who believe in Jesus. Even so, the death of a loved one can bring a sense of loss. 

To arrange for a funeral to take place here, simply contact our Parish Clerk: Jo Ladkin. If you would value someone to chat to about a bereavement, our Pastoral Team is well equipped to support you. They can be contacted directly by email or via the Church Office.
