Baptism and weddings.
Anyone living in our parishes is welcome to arrange a baptism (Christening) or wedding at one of our churches. If you live nearby and/or have a strong connection or link to one of our churches, do contact us to see if we can help.
If you are uncertain which parish you live in enter your post code into A Church Near You: www.achurchnearyou.com
Baptism is the beginning of the journey of faith.
We often baptise babies and small children, wherein parents and godparents make promises on their behalf. One of the ministers will visit you at home and discuss the service and then if appropriate, arrange a date for you. Usually baptisms take place within is scheduled Sunday family service, so that the congregation can welcome you into the church family. To be a god-parent you need to be baptised.
Adults are also welcome to be baptised, whereon there is a short session of instruction in Christian Faith.
At present no baptisms can be conducted as the government has suspended public services in church.
To find out more:
All of our churches are available for weddings and we will welcome you, pray for you and help you both prepare for your special day. There can be church bells and organ or contemporary music and help with flowers and the clergy will meet with you to arrange legalities, explain the Christian wedding service and conduct a full rehearsal.
At present no weddings are permitted, and when government allows they are likely to be limited.
