Baptisms and Thanksgivings

  

 

Baptism is an occasion for rejoicing and celebration, and marks a very important moment in a person's life as a follower of Jesus Christ.

Baptisms and Thanksgivings are usually held during the main Sunday morning service.

Adults are baptised by full immersion (in a pool).

For children, because of the promises and commitments that parents make at baptism on their child's behalf, parents are encouraged to attend services at St Augustine’s regularly for several months before bringing their child for baptism. 

A simpler service of thanksgiving and blessing is available as an alternative.  This can be arranged quite quickly, and with less preparation.

(There is no fee for a thanksgiving or baptism.  It is free).

Weddings


 

Marriage is a wonderful gift of God, and a wedding is a cause for much celebration.

To be married in St Augustine’s Church, you must either be living within the parish boundaries, or be on the church’s electoral roll (minimum of 6 months’ attendance at Sunday worship).  Also a person with a 'qualifying connection' with the parish may also be able to marry in the church.

If you would like to know more, or if you have any questions, please contact the church office.

Fees are according to the Church of England Table of Parochial Fees.

 

Funerals

We are able to conduct a Christian funeral in St Augustine’s, followed by committal at a crematorium or cemetery; or to conduct the complete service at a crematorium or cemetery chapel.   (There is usually a time limit of 20 minutes at a crematorium chapel; there is no limit on a church service).

Please inform the funeral director if you wish to have your local vicar conduct the service.  The vicar who is to conduct the service will always arrange a visit before the funeral in order to plan the details of the service with you.

Fees are according to the Church of England Table of Parochial Fees.
