Marriage in church is about inviting God to be part of your marriage and to bless it!
Marriage in church contains both legal and spiritual elements. The Bible tells us that: God is love, and those who live in love live in God and God lives in them.
This is what we want for all those who come to get married at Newbold Parish Church!
The Rector will also need to make sure that you can get married in church. Here are some of the questions you will be asked…
- Do you live in the parish?
- Do you have the right identification?
- Have you been married before?
Don’t worry if you’re not sure! The Rector will be able to help you find out exactly what is needed, and guide you through the process, step by step.
However, you can also find up to date information about Church of England weddings: everything from legalities, to hymn suggestions, to planning your big day by visiting:
To enquire about weddings please contact our Rector, Ben, directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01246 450374
What is baptism?
Just as every child begins learning his or her ‘ABC’, so there is, if you like, an ‘ABC’ for baptism…
- Accepting – that God has a purpose for you and your child
- Believing – that God loves you and your child and wants the best for you
- Committing – your life, and the life of your child, to Jesus Christ
Baptism of a child is as much a sign of his or her parents’ own faith as anything else. That is why the very first question you are asked in the Baptism service requires that you are willing to give the child help and encouragement by your prayers, your example, and by your teaching.
