Baptism

We are delighted that you are considering one of our churches for your own or your child’s baptism.  The link to ‘Thinking about Baptism’ will tell you more about our understanding of baptism.  Please contact us if you’d like to know more or wish to talk about a service for yourself or your child.

To help parents and carers keep the promises they make at baptism to bring children up as Christians we provide special groups and services.  We’d love to see you at our family services, at Little Angels or Children’s Church. (See Youth and Children’s page).

Marriage

Congratulations! We are very pleased you are thinking about being married in church.  For such a special day we offer you a special place and will help you plan a personal, meaningful and spiritual wedding.  Marrying in church has never been easier thanks to a change in the law which means you now have more churches to choose from.  Click on the link to ‘Your Marriage in the Alfred Jewel Benefice’ to find out more about getting married in one of our churches.   The website www.yourchurchwedding.org also has a lot of useful information on it.
