Baptisms and Weddings


We are delighted that you are considering baptism, whether it is for yourself or your child.  St. John’s welcomes the baptism (baptism is also known as ‘christening’) of infants and children as well as for adults and is committed to providing a place of welcome and hospitality in which those coming forward for baptism, together with parents and godparents can explore and grow in the Christian faith and remain faithful to their baptismal promises.


Congratulations! You’re welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. And, marrying in church has never been easier thanks to a change in the law which means you now have more churches to choose from.

For such a special day, we offer a special place – St. John’s is a lovely and holy place for you to commit yourselves to each other.

The first thing you must do is to see if the church is free on the date you wish to get married. To do this, you should contact us to arrange an initial meeting to discuss your plans. If there are any details which you are not sure about then get in touch and we will be pleased to discuss your arrangements with you.

We will help you every step of the way in making sure that your wedding day is all you hope it will be. For lots of information and ideas about your church wedding have a look at the Church of England weddings website:
