Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals
While baptism does not give your child religion, it is a formal welcoming in to Christ's church and the beginning of learning more about what it means to follow Christ. During this service, parents and godparents are asked to publicly answer questions about their faith in Jesus and make promises before God and loved ones on behalf of their child.
Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life; no one goes to the Father except by me."
- John 14:6
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
- 1 Corinthians 13.4-7
We believe marriage is a symbol of God's love for his people, the church. The bible looks at marriage as a lifeling partnership uniting a man and woman in heart, mind and body. It is an exciting step in life and one which we celelbrate with you. If you would like to be married at All Saints, it is important to first contact the clergy team to ensure dates can be confirmed.
Every funeral or memorial service is an important occasion, providing the opportunity for people to express their grief, to extend sympathy to the bereaved and to honour and celebrate life. Our hope for you is that through Jesus you will know God is close and he cares for you.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
- Psalm 23:4
