How do I ...?

...arrange a wedding

Congratulations on your engagement! Getting married in church is the best! Come and make your marriage vows before God and Family and friends, and seek God’s blessing on your future life together. If you would like to be married in one of our churches, please click here to send an enquiry to our Parish Office.

We conduct weddings in five of our District churches – Christchurch, Waterside; Emmanuel; St John’s Ashley Green; St George’s, Tylers Hill; and St Mary’s.

...arrange a Baptism / Christening

Baptism is the Christian symbol of commitment. It reminds us of God’s amazing commitment to us, shown supremely when Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins and greed. It reminds us if God’s call on our lives – to live for Him, and not for ourselves.

People of all ages are regularly baptised at our churches, including babies and young children. If you would like to know more, please contact the Parish Office by clicking here.

...arrange a funeral

If you are contacting us because someone in your family or close to you has died, please accept our prayerful condolences. The first few hours and days after the death of a loved one can be numbing and confusing.

If you haven’t done so already, you will need to make contact with a local funeral director and ask them to make the necessary arrangements for you.

If you would like to hold a funeral service in one of our churches, or for one of our staff team to conduct a funeral at a crematorium, please phone the Parish Office (01494 783629) or click here.

Details of a Church of England Funeral Service can be found here

We will be praying for you at this sad time. You may find this selection of prayers helpful prayers
