    Weddings
     
    Congratulations!  We are delighted that you are considering getting married in church, so have a look at our Marriage Information Pack which tells you just about everything you might need to know about what’s involved, how much it costs, and what you need to do next if you would like to hold your wedding in one of our churches or have your marriage blessed by the church.

    You might think you can’t get married in church, but there are very few cases where it’s not possible.  If you can prove or establish a connection with one of our churches we should be able to help you.  We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.

    Finally, www.yourchurchwedding.org  has all sorts of useful information to help you plan your ceremony.

     

    Banns


    If you are getting married in another church and need us to call your banns, please see ‘Getting in touch’ below.


    Baptisms


    Baptism (known by many as ‘Christening’) is a symbol of entry into the Church and involves (for young children) parents making promises before God to bring a child up in the Christian lifestyle.  Some people prefer to opt for a simple Thanksgiving service where we say a prayer of thanks to God for the birth of a child.  A baptism needs to be conducted by one of our vicars, and as far as possible would normally take place in one of our main Sunday morning services.


    Funerals


    All of our churches are available for funeral services and our team of clergy and ministers are available to officiate for funerals, for cremations at local crematoria, and for burials of ashes.  

    The churchyards at Dauntsey, Garsdon, Great Somerford and Lea are available for burials of those who lived in those parishes, whilst burials for Brinkworth and Little Somerford take place in local cemeteries.   Local arrangements vary and our ministers will be happy to discuss this with you.


    Funerals are normally arranged with us via your funeral director who will co-ordinate all the arrangements with you.  In the meantime, please refer to our Funeral Guide.
