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!
How much does it cost?
If you have all of the usual things: the ceremony, organist, flowers, etc. the cost is around £850. Additional flowers can be added for £60.
Do I need to have been baptised to get married in church?
The short answer is no. Although baptism is an amazing part of your journey with God, you do not need to have been baptised to get married here.
Don’t worry if you’re not sure what is involved! The Rector will be able to help you find out exactly what is needed, and guide you through the process, step by step.
To enquire about weddings please contact our Rector, Ben, directly via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone 01246 450374

How do I find out about Christenings?
The best thing to do is to read the information about Christening & baptism below and then come to a service to find out what we do. We have two main services: 9.30am every Sunday – a traditional service with Holy Communion & The 11 o’clock service – 1st, 2nd & 3rd Sunday each month. This is a contemporary service for all-ages. Both of these services have refreshments afterwards which is an ideal time to talk to Ben our Rector, or Rhoda our Curate, about what is involved.
There is no cost involved, although we do ask that you, and those attending, are generous with donations.
What is Christening?
Just as every child begins learning his or her ‘ABC’, so there is, if you like, an ‘ABC’ for Christening & 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
The Christening 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.
