Weddings and Christenings at St Mary’s (2018)

Interested parties can download enquiry forms for weddings and christenings containing further details.

We take about 20 Weddings and 35 Christenings a year on average and that takes a lot of organisation & administration together with a lot of care & attention because each service and event is special and important to you the individual and therefore is important to us as a church.

For Weddings at St Mary’s contact the Rector

For Christenings at St Mary’s contact Emma at

Ian Whitehead, Rector.
