Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

Our church buildings are here to enable all who live in our parishes to gather and worship Jesus Christ from the beginning to the end of their lives on this earth and everything in between. From the thanksgiving and promises of Baptism and Marriage, through regular joyful, humble worship on Sunday (or other days), to the sadness with sure hope of Funerals and Memorials conducted in the light of the Resurrection of Jesus, we are honoured to help you enjoy life in all its fullness within the goodness of God.

While we have no Priest in Charge in our Parishes - anyone wishing to arrange a Baptism, Marriage or Funeral is warmly encouraged to contact their local Churchwarden (please see list below).


We have a friendly retired Vicar with whom we can put you in touch and he will be very happy to be of assistance.
