Let the children come to me…for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these…Luke 18:16
In the Sacrament of Baptism the love of God is offered to each one of us. In the case of Child Baptism the Church would expect at least one parent, or close family member, to be a member of the Church, or to express a desire to be so and the Sacrament would usually take place during Sunday Worship before the congregation emphasising the welcome into the Body of Christ. Should you wish to have your child Baptised, please contact the Minister who will be happy to discuss it with you.
‘Let all that you do be done in love’…1 Cor. 16:14
We thank you for choosing our church and hope you both find this information useful as you plan your Wedding Day together. For further information please do not hesitate to contact the Minister to arrange a meeting, at which all the arrangements, fees etc. will be discussed.
Flowers are normally placed in the church on the morning of the wedding, however should you like them to be in place on the day before see the Minister. Flower arrangements can be left in the church until after the Sunday service, however if you wish to remove your displays before Sunday this must be done no later than 5pm on Saturday.
Marriage Schedules should be collected from the Registrar approx 6-8 weeks before the date of the wedding and returned, completed, to the Registrar no later than 4 weeks before the wedding. The Schedule should then be uplifted 7 days before the wedding and brought to the wedding rehearsal along with the appropriate fees.
This will normally take place at 7pm on the evening before the wedding.
