What a wonderful moment in a new baby's life, and a wonderful time in a Family's life - when the baby is welcomed into the fellowship of the Church and starts a journey with Christ which will last a lifetime. What better reason for a Family Party!

I, and members of the congregation, are pleased to talk to you about what baptism means, so please don't hesitate to ask. We'll gently and carefully go through all the arrangements and the service too so you know exactly what you are doing.

If you're not sure that you want to make that depth of commitment for your new baby you might prefer to opt for the "thanksgiving for the birth of a child" service. Again, don't hesitate to ask.

The congregation love it when a baby is baptised on a Sunday morning when they're all there to welcome them, but I understand that 9.30am might not always be the most convenient time! We'll do our very best to accommodate your wishes.

Hey......I've said "baby"....but there's no reason at all why older children, teenagers, adults, MUCH older people shouldn't be Baptised. Often an older person really wants to make a commitment, so this might be part of your journey to Confirmation.

Please ASK - for your baby, your child, your teenager, YOURself! My contact details are here.

Contrary to what the newspapers would like you to believe, church weddings are on the increase. Many couples realise how very special the promises they want to make to each other are, and they want to do this in a special place, and in God's presence too.

The dear old Church of England has even helped by relaxing the rules about who may get married and where. You'll find more about this on the Church's wedding website.

Don't be put off by horror stories about the cost; unlike Venue weddings, the church will charge you less than £500. You'll find precise details here.

If you want any advice about getting married in the Church of England don't hesitate to ask - drop me an email or phone me. There's no such thing as a daft question....so ask away, I'm here to help.

Saying goodbye to a loved one is always painful even when it's sometimes a happy release. I am here to help you in any way I can, whether you want a funeral in church, at the crematorium, or in a cemetery.

If we work together to plan the service you will find that a very helpful part of your grieving process, and will also probably find that you actually enjoy the funeral - because it's personal and right for your loved one.

So don't hesitate to call on my services.

Even more wonderful, if you know there might be a funeral in the offing, allow me to visit the person beforehand.

Don't be afraid to talk to a loved one about their (or your) funeral either; it's wonderful to be able to say "I know they wanted this hymn  or that reading".
