baptisms, weddings and funerals

baptism

We are delighted that you are thinking about a baptism (also known as Christening) for your child – or yourself!

Please pick up a leaflet from the back of the church which explains the way we approach this special day with you, contact  the church office for more information, or click here for our baptism leaflet.

 

 

 

 

 

weddings

If you always dreamed of a church wedding or are thinking about it for the first time, we will be delighted to help and guide you for this very special occasion. A useful source of information can be found at www.yourchurchwedding.org where you will find a comprehensive guide to church weddings which will answer many of your questions.

If one or both of you is divorced, then you may still be able to marry in church, but will need to meet with the clergy to discuss this further. 

 

Please contact the church office for more information.

 

You will also find further information about weddings here at St Matthias in the attached leaflet.

Please also see Banns Application Form.

 

 

funerals

At a time of bereavement we are here to help any family who live in the parish or have close links with the parish. Your chosen funeral director will contact the church to make the necessary arrangements. A member of the clergy will visit the bereaved family as soon as possible and help with all aspects of the planning of the funeral service. A funeral can either be held in the church or in the crematorium, depending on your wishes.  There is no burial ground attached to St. Matthias’ Church
