Baptisms

Baptisms are beginning to happen once again.

We will be in touch with those who already have a Baptism booked.

Numbers of those attending the baptism must be kept to a minimum – the candidate, their parents/guardians/carers, godparents and the minister and no others (30).

Funerals

There will still be funerals, but the rules on gatherings and social distancing need to be applied here as everywhere. Due regard must also be given to protecting elderly and vulnerable groups.

MEMORIALS

We are able to offer a Memorable service to a loved one, at a later date, if family members and friends are unable to attend a funeral due to self-isolation

Weddings

While wedding services may continue, numbers attending the ceremony in church will need to be strictly  to the legal maximum, of 30.

If a couple wishes to cancel their wedding, then any fees or deposit paid to the church will be refunded in full, and if the couple wishes to postpone, the church will work with them to find a suitable future date wherever possible.

Where it has not been possible for marriage banns to be read because of restrictions to public services, a Common Licence or Special Licence may be appropriate. The priest will be able to help you to ensure you have what is necessary.

For those going ahead with their wedding, it could be possible to have a blessing at a future date with more friends and family in attendance. Prayers can also be said during the service for any who are unable to attend.
