Baptisms, Marriages and Funerals
We delight in celebrating God’s love and faithfulness through worship, prayer and pastoral services at the key points of life’s journey: birth, marriage and bereavement – offering services of baptism (Christening), marriage, prayer and dedication after a civil ceremony, funeral and memorials. Sadly it is not possible for us to legally marry same sex couples, none the less we would be delighted to offer a service of prayer and thanksgiving, please talk to us about the possibilities. To arrange baptisms, wedding or funeral please phone, email or drop into the Parish Office on weekdays (9.30 – 12.30) to fix a date to talk.
We welcome adults or children for baptism (if you aren’t sure if you qualify, just ask!).
During the christening your child will be baptized. It’s the first step of an amazing journey with God, which for a child includes their parents, godparents, friends, and family as well as the church community.
You don’t have to have been christened yourself, and you don’t have to have been a regular churchgoer. It is free, and usually takes place in the 9.30 service on the second Sunday of the month.

Many couples get married at St George’s each year. Whilst some live in the parish, others have one of several legal ‘qualifying connections’. Just email, phone or pop in to the Parish Office to make arrangements to discuss whether you might fit one of these.
We can offer a warm welcome, a stunning building, exquisite flowers, excellent music and work with you to create a meaningful and beautiful service for your marriage.

Losing someone you love is difficult. Each person is unique in so many ways. We can help you to plan a service, whether in our church or elsewhere, that will allow you to give thanks for the particular person you knew and loved in a way that provides comfort and hope.
We also welcome you to come and pray, or to light a candle, or to join us at any of our services.
