Weddings, Baptisms & Funerals

Weddings are conducted following either the Church of England or The Methodist service. They can be held at any time of the year and we would be delighted to prepare you for your big day. With regard to the Church of England there are, however, some current legal requirements that you will need to know about. Some frequently asked questions include ‘Can I marry outside of my parish?’ ‘Do I need to have been baptised in order to marry in Church?’ and ‘What is the Church’s current position on the remarriage of divorcees?’

Please contact one of the ministers for further information. You can also find further information on both The Methodist Church of Great Britain and the Church of England Website.

 

 Baptisms also take place throughout the year at The Nativity.  Children are brought for baptism/christening as infants; some come much later in life. There is no age limit to baptism. However, teenagers and adults will normally be prepared for Confirmation at the same time as baptism.

As the person to be baptised is entering the family of the Church, all baptisms at The Nativity take place in the main Sunday service - so that the local family of the Church is present to welcome its new member. Again, please contact one of the Ministers if you wish baptism for yourself or your child – we will be only too pleased to help you.

More information on Baptism can be found on the Methodist Church of Great Britain and Church of England Website.

 

Funerals A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God's keeping.

As far back into history as we can penetrate, human beings seem to have felt the need for a ceremonial leave-taking of those who have died.

A funeral service at the Church of the Nativity can be very short and quiet with only a few members of the family present or an occasion of great solemnity with music, hymns and a packed church.

Whatever the pattern of service, the words and actions all speak of a loving God and the preciousness to Him of every human being.

Please contact any of the Ministers if you wish to arrange a funeral or discuss any matters concerning questions of life and death.
