Baptism is a celebration of God’s love. Whether it is a infant baptism or a baptism of an adult person it is still a celebration of the love that God has for each one of us. The service itself is ancient and involves promises being made either by the one being baptised or by the parents and godparents. In all services of baptism water is used, signifying a new start within the life of the church.
Funerals and Weddings
The local parish priest is your first point of contact should you wish to hold a funeral or wedding service in a church. Churches services have long been used to mark both times of great joy and sadness as people come to both thank God and pray to God for support.
