Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

While our church buildings are now open for both private and public services, in order to adhere to the guidelines of social distancing, it is not possible to conduct services in the usual manner which has a huge bearing on these important life events.

Weddings, wedding blessings and renewals of vows may now take place but with restrictions on the number of guests. Special licences may also be required as Banns may not be able to be read. Please get in touch for further advice and we will be happy to help you.

Funerals can now take place in church as well as at the graveside or Crematorium, however there are still restrictions as to who can attend to adhere to social distancing and public health advice for those more vulnerable. Your funeral director and minister will be able to advise you of this further.

Baptisms can now take place, provided appropriate criteria for minimizing risk are met. Emergency baptisms can also take place at home or in hospital.

For more information about these services, please contact Lisa Stannard by emailing lisa.stannard@newcreationchurches.org.uk or leave a message for her on the office answerphone 01934 822 858.
