Weddings, Banns, Christenings and Funerals
Congratulations! We are delighted that you are considering getting married in church, so have a look at our Marriage Information Pack which tells you just about everything you might need to know about what’s involved, how much it costs, and what you need to do next.
You might think you can’t get married in church, but there are very few cases where it’s not possible. If you can prove or establish a connection with one of our churches we should be able to help you. We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.
Finally, yourchurchwedding.org has all sorts of useful information to help you plan your ceremony.
If you would like to discuss the possibility of arranging a weddings in any of the churches in our team (or you are getting married somewhere else and need us to call your banns) please contact our Team Administrator, Fiona Draper, in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call in to or phone the Church Office – details here
We would be delighted to welcome all, of any age, who come to us seeking baptism into the world-wide Christian church family and we, as a Church, will support you as you take this important step on your journey of faith. It is a very important decision and not one to be taken lightly. We offer two options for parents – Baptism and Thanksgiving. For more information please go to our Christenings page.
All of our churches are available for funeral services and our clergy team are available to officiate for funerals, for cremations at local crematoria, and for burials of ashes.
The churchyards at Neston and Bowden Hill are available for burials of those who lived in those parishes, whilst burials for Corsham, Gastard and Lacock take place in local cemeteries. It is possible for cremated ashes to be interred in the grounds of all our churches, for people who lived in those parishes. Local arrangements vary and our clergy team will be happy to discuss this with you.
Funerals are normally arranged with us via your funeral director who will co-ordinate all the arrangements with you.
We welcome all gifts in wills, however large or small and we promise to use your gift to make a difference to our parish. You can read the St Bart’s policy here: St Barts-Legacy-Policy_Jan 22
