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.
