WANT A SPECIAL SERVICE?

Sometimes a family may wish to organise a special service at one of our churches.  All Souls Parish is here to support you through the good times and sometimes the not so good.  Our Rector Revd Joanne would love to listen to what you are thinking and help you arrange a personal and meaningful service.

To find out more please click on the links below and, when ready, please contact us using the Life Events enquiry form below and we will be in touch.

Christenings, Baptisms and Thanksgiving Services

Christenings or Baptisms are special times when we are pleased to welcome new members into the Church Family.  Please note that Baptisms ordinarily take place during a regular Family Service.

During the christening service your child will be baptized and with the support of the church, you and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith.

All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on churchofenglandchristenings.org. It also includes information about another church service - a service of Thanksgiving to say thank you for God for your baby.

Weddings

 

Weddings are always a great cause for celebration in any family. If you live in the Parish of All Souls and would like a member of your family to have their wedding service here then have a look at the information about Marriage on the Church of England website

Today more than a quarter of all marriages in England between a man and a woman take place in the traditional setting of a Church of England church. You're welcome to marry in church whatever your beliefs, whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church. You can read more about Weddings here.

if you want to get married in one of our churches but aren't sure if its possible, talk to our Rector Joanne and she will help guide you.

Funerals

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world. You can find out more about funerals here.

 

Your parish church is here for you whether you are a regular, occasional or never stepped through the door before. If you lose a member of your family and would like to have a Funeral Service or a Memorial Service in church, then please contact Revd Joanne,  or you can ask your funeral director to make contact on your behalf.  

 

Revd Joanne can also take a service for your loved one at the graveside, crematorium or natural burial ground.
