Baby Baptism Ceremony

Baptisms and Christenings

New Life

Baptism is a sign of new life in Christ as well as a special day for all your friends and family.

During the traditional Christening service you will be baptized as a Christian.

The Church of England’s website, explaining all about the wonderful journey with God that you will embark on, this also has lots of information for parents, godparents and guests as you plan your big day.

If you wish to recognise the gift of your new baby with Families and Friends but not have a full baptism service you could choose a Thanksgiving Service.

Please, do get in touch to find out more. To be baptised here you should be a resident of the Benefice or have close family connections.

New Beginnings

Congratulations, an exciting and happy time lies ahead and there will be so much to think about.

We are delighted you are considering being married with us. If you are doubtful about whether you may be married in church, please ask. As well as marrying in church, some couples hold a Service of Blessing after taking their civil vows in a Registry Office.

The Church of England’s website explains what is understood by ‘Christian marriage’, what the church service involves, as well as some of the legal considerations.

Weddings are often planned a long time ahead because of other activities in the church, for more information and the fees for a wedding please get in touch.

Funerals

Eternal Life

Remembering a life loved by God & commending it to our Father in heaven for eternity, a Church of England funeral is available to everyone. The Church of England has a website to help you at this difficult time.

Confirmations

Confirmation is an important part of the journey of the Christian faith. Many people who were christened as a child go on to confirmation – a chance to ‘confirm’ their baptism promises – when they have grown up. 

Once a person has learned the faith for the first time and come to baptism and confirmation, then year by year that faith and understanding are deepened within the framework of the great story of salvation lived out and expressed in our liturgy. The story is revisited over and over again at different stages of life and of faith development. 

Find out more about confirmation by visiting the Church of England website, and do speak to your Rector, Jonathan Plows to find out more.
