Pastoral Services


The gift of a child is a time of great happiness and the beginning of new responsibilities as parents. Parents share with their wider family and friends the responsibility for the formation and growth of the unique person that your child both is and will become – as you and your child face life’s joys and demands.
Through Baptism we – as a Church family - begin to share your spiritual and sacred responsibility for your child. The Christian faith gives purpose and hope in an often confusing and difficult world.

Baptisms can be arranged by contacting Rev James directly.

Confirmation is an important rite of passage for all people who have decided to follow

Jesus Christ. 

The 'confirmation' affirms that a person is 'of age' and has the understanding of what it means to take an active responsibility in the life of the faith community to which they belong.

In the Anglican Church, a person is confirmed by the Bishop of the Diocese - maintaining the Apostolic Succession of Jesus giving the disciples the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 20:22)

Confirmations occur in the parish every couple of years, and candidates are required to attend formation sessions to prepare them properly for the occasion.

The wedding service is an ancient ritual bringing two families together in a sacred union.
There is a legal and a spiritual element to the Wedding Service.
Legally, couples must comply to the 'Marriage Act 1961' and there are several steps to take to make their union legally bound.
Spiritually, couples proclaim and commit publicly to take responsibility for each other's welfare in their sacred and holy union - with God as their overseer and guide. Family and friends also commit to faithfully and lovingly enable the couple to grow in love together - as they witness the vows and affirm their love for each other.

Weddings can be arranged with Rev James, and 'Notification of a Marriage' must be submitted 30 days before the date of the ceremony.

Human beings have sensed the mystery of death, and the pain of grief, since time immemorial. Every society has developed rites to mark the passage from life through death, and to commemorate the dead. 

Today, we do this through the funeral service, and the rites by which we lay a person's body to rest.

the wounds of grief need time and care to heal. the funeral may help this process, by enabling us to acknowledge our loss, give thanks for the life of the person who has died, make our last farewell, and begin to take up life once more.

In the Christian understanding, Jesus defeated death through the Resurrection,

and proclaims that new life is God's promise to us - even in the face of death.
