Your Christening, Your Wedding

Your Christening

It has been a long and difficult year, and it looks, Now, as if there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
The roadmap says that we should be allowed to offer baptisms again from May 17th with 30 people attending, and then as many as you invite from June 21st.  Baptism is a chance to gather with friends and family to listen to God’s promise of love and to invite God to be part of the life of your family. Baptism is also a chance to give thanks to God for all the wonder and joy your child or children have brought to you and those you know, and to celebrate the love God has for each one of us.   

Your Wedding

If you have a connection with St Paul’s (e.g. you live locally, or used to, or your parents were married here) and you were planning to get married in 2020 or 2021, or you’ve decided during the lockdown that you would like to get married, then we would be delighted to chat to you, to answer any questions you have and to help you think things through.

The current roadmap allows 15 people attending from April 12th, 30 from May 17th and unlimited numbers from June 21st. There is something really affirming and positive about the thought of organising a wedding for the Summer of 2021 or beyond. We would be delighted to be part of what will feel an even more special day for you and those you are closest to as we emerge from the last 12 months together.

  • Our daughter Alana was christened at St Paul’s three years ago, and we would love to have our second daughter, Imogen, christened at St Paul’s. She is currently four weeks old, and we were wondering it would be possible to have her christened in June as part of a Sunday morning service.
    With Thanks,
    Fran and Chris

    • I am sure that it can be arranged. I have forwarded your comment to the Church Office. You may want to contact them directly ( if you do not hear anything by next week when the Parish Administrator is back from an Easter break.
