(Also known as Christenings)
We welcome all people of all ages for baptism at St Thomas
A time of celebration
Baptism is an occasion of great celebration and involves both believing and belonging. The promises that are made as part of the service affirm belief in God and also a sense of belonging to the church family.
Baptisms at St Thomas
We offer baptisms at 12 noon on the 1st Sunday of every month with no more than two baptism families per service. We aim to make this service as personalised as we can for you and your guests – you can choose the hymns and help to write some of the prayers. We will then invite you to come along to one of our 10am Services shortly afterwards so that you can receive your Baptism Candle and be welcomed into the Church Family. Sometimes, we offer baptism as part of the 10am Service if that is something you would prefer.
Please make contact with the Parish Office if you would like to find out more about baptism.Contact us
Weddings and Relationship Blessings
We will work with you to make your day special, personal and meaningful.
Weddings and Blessings at St Thomas
It would be our joy to celebrate your marriage here at St Thomas. We welcome all enquires about having a marriage service at St Thomas, including those from people who have been divorced. We also offer Blessings of Civil Marriages. We’ll try our best to make your day extra special, meaningful, and d day you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.
We hope and pray that in the future the Church of England will be able to offer weddings to those in same-sex partnerships. However, we will soon be permitted to offer same-sex couples a personalised church blessing following a Civil Marriage or Civil Partnership and would be delighted to hear from you about this.
Please contact the Parish Office to find out more about getting married or having a service of blessing at St Thomas Church.
