Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

At St Michael's we will be very happy to help you mark important moments in your life and the life of your family.

In all instances, the first point of contact is the parish clergy. 





Baptism is the gateway to life in the Christian Church. If you would like to arrange for your child to be baptized, please come and speak to one of the priests after any Mass.




To be married at St Michael's you must either live in the parish or worship with us. Please get in touch with the clergy to find out more about this. Preparation for marriage will normally take place over at least four months. The marriage fees are set annually by the Church of England.


To find out which parish you live in, visit A Church Near You and enter your postcode.




The parish priests will always be glad to meet and minister to people who have been bereaved. This might be to pray with them, offer a Mass for the soul of their departed loved one, or to arrange a funeral in collaboration with the chosen funeral directors. Please feel free to contact the clergy if you have been bereaved. They will be pleased to meet you.
