Baptisms

Baptism is a gift from God. We are always happy to discuss your particular requirements whether for a child or adult.  To enquire, please contact us by email. Please include your telephone number and  email address and we will be in touch directly to discuss further.   
All baptism parents [if child] or adults must attend a short preparation/rehearsal prior to the baptism. This can be arranged with the priest conducting the service.

Funerals

Whenever we hear of a loss we are truly sorry. We will do whatever we can to help you mark your loved one’s final farewell with love and respect in a funeral service in accordance with the rites of the Church of England. In the first instance, you will need to contact an undertaker, who will arrange matters for you. This will include contacting us, should you choose to hold the funeral at St. Mark’s. If you require contact details, we can give you a list of local firms. The minister taking the service will help and guide you through the process of choosing readings, music and other appropriate marks of respect. If you would like the Parish Priest to conduct a service away from the Church, this service is also available.
