Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
We welcome people of all ages into the sacrament of baptism. Baptism is a rite of identity as a Christian, a rite of membership in the worldwide Christian community and marks the beginning of a lifelong journey of faith.
Children are baptised because their parents desire to bring them up in the love of Christ and the community of the Church. Adults and young people seek baptism to mark their choice to live a life of faith in Christ.
Preparation for baptism will vary according to the needs and situation of the person/family involved.
We also offer a service of Thanksgiving for a Child for families that may not be ready to make the commitment of baptism but want to give thanks to God for the gift of their child.
All are welcome to make enquiries about baptism no matter where you may be on your faith journey.
Those who have been baptised as infants or at a later stage in their life can be confirmed in the faith they have been brought up in through a special service of blessing and encouragement.
This is an opportunity for young people and adults to mark in a special way, their choice to live a life of faith in Christ and share in the life of the Christian community.
Preparation for confirmation will vary according to the needs, age and situation of the person involved.
St Michael and All Angels at Hall, is a lovely venue for a small country style wedding.
The church has seating for a maximum of 65 people and the grounds provide a great opportunity for photos or mingling after the ceremony.
St Barnabas at Charnwood is a modern multi-use facility with a light-filled and welcoming worship space.
It has seating for 120 and kitchen facilities for light refreshments.
Being an Anglican church we use the Anglican Marriage Rite and tailor the service to be meaningful to individual couples.
We have no particular restrictions on the remarriage of divorced people.

These services can take place at either St Michael’s or St Barnabas’, or a location of your choosing.
