Baptisms and Weddings

St Matthew's is delighted to conduct both baptisms or weddings if you live in our parish or have an association with our church in any way.

Baptisms are usually at 12:00pm or 12:30pm on a Sunday, but special arrangements can be made in different circumstances.

Weddings seem to be normally on Saturdays but this can be easily negotiated too, as long as the church is not being used for other services.

Many people ask about costs for weddings and for 2018 the cost is roughly around £550, which includes the wedding ceremony and all legal fees, but if you would like an organist or flowers
this involves additional outlay. 

If you are wishing to be re-married this is possible too, but the priest who visits you will ask a couple of simple questions. Do not be alarmed by this, it is simply to protect the seriousness of a wedding ceremony in church.

The Church of England has its own web site also, with much information on a church wedding. Follow this link:
