We welcome all who would like baptism for themselves or for their child who live in the parish or have a connection to it.
Congratulations on your impending marriage.
Marriage has a profound meaning to those getting married; your church recognises the importance of this commitment as a sacrament.
If you would like to celebrate your wedding in church, we will be delighted to guide you through the process; there are various legal formalities but usually there is a way in which we can arrange for you to be married in one of our churches.
Please contact the rector for further information.
Holy Matrimony across the benefice
Loosing a loved one is a traumatic experience, your church is here to support you.
Before, during and after the passing of your loved-one the church is here to help.
As a community of people we support each other in our grief and offer the compassion of Christ at this very difficult time.
Please contact a church warden who will be pleased to try to be of assistance.
All of our churches have churchyards in which burials still take place. In some of our churchyards, we are able to accommodate for burial only those who have lived or died in the parish concerned. We do, however, welcome for burial the ashes of anyone who wishes their remains to be interred in one of our churchyards.
