Baptisms and Weddings

Baptisms - What do I do next?

Baptisms

At St Matthew's we carry out a lot of Baptisms and dates fill up very quickly. Before you make contact with the Vicar please take a moment to see the Baptism Policy below.

Once you have read the policy and are happy to proceed then please feel free to make contact.

You can get in touch with Fr Alex who will gladly answer any questions or concerns you may have. Tel 07814 052919 or email the vicar at alextheanglican@hotmail.com or use the contact form below or on the homepage.


Vicar's Baptism Policy

 The Vicar and clergy are happy to conduct Baptisms for babies, children and adults. To book a child’s Baptism you would need to attend one of our Sunday services which normally take place at 10.30am It is preferable that you reside within the Parish, however we can possibly come to some arrangement if you do live elsewhere, but would need to advise your local church. We don't charge for a Baptism but we would request a reasonable donation.

To check where your local church is go to,

or for more information on Baptisms go to  https://churchofenglandchristenings.org  

 

Weddings

 

St Matthews is a beautiful and historical church, and is the perfect setting for a wedding service.  Weddings can be arranged for any days of the week and most months throughout the year.  We understand that this is a very special occasion and so we will do all we can to provide you with the perfect service.

We also appreciate you may have lots of questions about a church wedding so please don't be afraid to get in touch for an informal chat with Fr Alex.
