Baptisms, weddings and funerals

The church is delighted to share in the major life events of birth and marriage... and to offer support at the time of death.

Baptisms

If you would like to have a child baptised then please contact one of the clergy. We would plan to meet with you to get to know you and talk through what this means – and look at different options within the service. You can read more about this at the Church of England website.

We also have groups which meet weekly and specially cater for parents and pre-school children. We would love to introduce you into one of these.

Weddings

If you are planning a wedding... congratulations! We welcome opportunities to make your day special at St Andrew's Church. Again, please contact one of the clergy. We will then meet to discuss dates, plan and lead you through some preparation for your marriage. Read more about marriage in the Church of England.

If you are getting married at another Church of England church and need to have your banns read at St Andrew's, please contact the Administrator.

Funerals

Our clergy work closely with local funeral directors and are available to assist at the time of death. We can come and anoint the sick, journey with the family and then conduct the service either at the church or at the cemetery or crematorium. Memorial services can also be arranged. Read more at the Church of England website.

We are available to all at times of joy and sadness. If you would like to speak to a member of the clergy please contact Revd Lesley or Revd Anne.
