Welcome we are delighted you are considering being married in Thornhill Parish Church. If you are doubtful about whether you may be married in church please ask.

The Church of England has a website explaining what is understood by ‘Christian marriage’, what the church service involves, and some of the legal considerations - find it here Bea Steven wedding

Weddings are often planned a long time ahead because of other activities in the church, the fees for a wedding can be seen in the link at the top of this page

A quarter of all weddings take place in a Church of England church. We average around twenty weddings per year in our church. Some couples hold a Service of Blessing after taking their civil vows in a Registry Office.

During your Christening service you will be baptized as a Christian. The Church of England has a new website explaining all about the wonderful journey with God that you will embark on - find it here.

The Baptism can be held within the main service at 9.30 a.m., or during a separate service on Sunday afternoons.



Baptism is a sign of new life in Christ. Baptism is a happy time for families -  If you are interested in baptism, or in having your child baptised, you should contact the Rector ( see information above)  for information and advice.
