Life Events are milestones common to many people's experiences. Some of these significant times of our lives are filled with great joy and happiness as with the birth of a child, a baptism or a wedding. At other times the experience is quite the opposite; a painful divorce, the loss of employment, the death of a loved one all may fill our hearts and minds with grief and sorrow. It is at these times of great joy or deep sorrow that families and friends show their support in a variety of ways. Some events bring people together in a common desire to celebrate a particular moment in life’s journey.
In the early days of the Church, new Christians were often baptised at Easter. Today many people bring their babies to baptism. It is at the point of baptism that a person becomes a member of the Christian Church. Children aged 8 + who regularly attend Sunday worship with their parents may be invited after a short period of study, to fully partake in the bread and wine of Holy Communion. For some this then leads on to a firmer commitment to the Church at Confirmation.
If you would like baptism for yourself or a family member – come along to Sunday worship, have a chat with one of the church wardens or one of the folk who welcome you are the door and the procedure as to how to book will be explained to you.
For many people getting married in church is very important because they take place before God in the traditional setting of a Church. The church is able to provide a large space where family and friends can celebrate with the couple and take the opportunity to remember their own marriage vows. You need to book well in advance if you have a special day in mind.

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world. When a death occurs in the family it is the funeral director who makes all the arrangements for you – including contacting the person who will be conducting the church service for you.
