is the beginning of a life journey for the Christian. Children of Christians are baptised as a mark of the faith of the parents that they will bring the child up to love God. Baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from all that is evil, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family.
Baptisms are held during a Sunday service, usually when there is not a Holy Communion. We normally require that someone enquiring about baptism attend church for three months prior to the baptism date.
For more details about what baptism involves, about Godparents and Certificates and so on, please see the Church of England website.
Thanksgiving for the Birth of a Child
This is a simple service to say thank you to God for the birth of a child. It is not a baptism and does not involve any promises. It is a good way to begin to think about future baptism but does not commit you.
The service can be part of Sunday Worship or at Messy Church. Please contact Heidi Cartledge to arrange. 01926 641751
Many couples choose to be married in church because they wish to show before God that they are serious about the vows they are taking. When we invite God to be a part of this special day, we are asking for his blessing and strength to help us live out our promises.
Holding the service in Church enables other Christians to be part of the commitment the Bride and Groom are making, and during he service they too pledge their support and prayer for the couple.
At the end of the service we ask for God’s blessing upon the newly weds, a blessing which we are confident He wants to give.

If you would like your marriage service in one of our churches in Edgehill, please download this brochure and then contact the vicar. He will send you the forms you need to get going. Once he has the forms he will arrange to meet with you to explore your reasons for wanting to be married in church and to check your legal qualifications to marry. A date and time for your marriage can then be agreed.
On your bereavement
A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church. Our church will be pleased to help you plan the service and also support you during this difficult time.
Everyone is entitled to either a burial service (funeral) or to have their ashes buried in their local parish churchyard by their local parish priest regardless of whether they attended church or not. Please speak to the vicar for more information.
The kinds of memorials you can have in our Churchyard are described in the brochure. Click the picture to download a pdf file
