Baptisms and marriages

If you wish to be baptised, to have your child baptised, or to be married at St Peter’s, the general guidelines regarding eligibility are as follows.

The Church of England operates on a geographic basis and your local parish church has a responsibility for your pastoral care. As part of this it offers the services of Baptism and Marriage.

“Baptism is essentially a welcome into the world church”Baptism is essentially a welcome into the world church, represented by a local church with which you have a relationship. If you live in the parish of St Peter’s the baptism can take place here.  If you do not live in the parish but have a connection with St Peter’s or regularly attend services here then the service can also take place here.  It is important that the baptism takes place in a church community with which you will have the opportunity for a continuing connection.

Marriages can take place at St Peter’s of those who either live in the parish or are on our electoral roll. The electoral roll is our membership list, made up of those who worship here regularly. People can join the electoral roll once they have attended St Peter’s regularly for six months.

If you are still not sure whether you are eligible, or whether you live in the parish, please contact the Parish Office on 01423 568218 or by email.
