Anyone can get in touch with a church to find about having their child christened. During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.
If you would like to have your child christened, more information can be found here. Additional details about planning a christening can also be found on the Church of England website
Marrying in church is personal, meaningful and spiritual just as you want it to be. Churches are special and unique places to get married in - the prayers, promises and the whole service of celebration become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond.
To find out if you qualify for marrying in one of the Benefice churches, click here. Once you have established a connection with the benefice, next steps can be found here but the Church of England website has a wealth of information to help with planning a church wedding too.
A church will always be there to help you through one of life’s most difficult times. A Church of England-led funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during and after the service, for as long as it’s needed.
As well as conducting funerals and thanksgiving services in church, we officiate at services in Crematoria. Please contact the Benefice office if you would like more information.
