Life Events

Latest update: September 27th 2020

We are now able to hold small marriage services and christenings in church with up to 15 people present, and funerals with up to 30 people present. We also have to observe physical distancing and put extra cleaning measures in place.

We are expecting further developments in the guidance about services as time goes by, so please contact us if you have any enquiries, and in the event of a funeral, the clergy and your chosen Funeral Director will be able to advise you at the time of bereavement as to what may be arranged.
