Three of life's big events are:

  • The arrival of a child in a family

  • Getting married

  • The loss of someone we love

Each is deeply meaningful in very different ways, and it's our privilege to be alongside you in them all.  We'd be very pleased to hear from you!  Just get in touch with us on 01225 350647 or


The Arrival of a child

Having your child baptised (aka "christened"), or arranging a service of dedication and thanksgiving, can be the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, sponsors, friends, family, and the church!  We'd love to talk with you about how this can be the beginning of a lifetime of discovering the faith, love, and hope that we and our families can know in Jesus Christ. 


We can discuss how we can help you prepare, what happens on the day, and what support the church can offer you as you bring up your children as Christians in the years ahead.

Getting Married

For a special day, you want a special place!  A church wedding is a spiritual, personal, and beautiful ceremony, a place where people will pray for you before, during, and after the big day.  You'll say ancient and amazing vows that you can only make in church.  The church is a place that connects with your history, and could become part of your future story too. 


The Church of England is open and welcoming with regard to church weddings, so we'd love to hear from you to discuss yours! 

The Loss of Someone You Love

We are always here to help you through one of life's most difficult times.  A Church of England funeral is available to everyone, giving support before, during, and after the service.  There's great sadness at the death of a loved one, and the funeral service will offer you the comfort of giving thanks for the unique person you knew, and of hearing the message of our hope through faith in the risen Christ. 


Don't hesitate to get in touch; we'll be glad to help you straight away and to begin praying for you.
