Life events - Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals

 

One of the most treasured aspects of the life of a parish church is the way in which it acts as the setting for the key turning points of life: Birth, Death and Marriage. Each is consecrated in its own way, and points to the presence of God in our joy and in our pain, at our beginning and at our ending.

CHRISTENING

      

 'And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of

the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.

And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’'

                                                                                                                                     Matthew 28

 



MARRIAGE


 

 

 

'I pray that, according to the riches of his glory, he may grant that you may be strengthened

in your inner being with power through his Spirit, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts

through faith, as you are being rooted and grounded in love.'

                                                                                                                                Ephesians 3



 


FUNERAL


   ''See, the home of God is among mortals.
   He will dwell with them;
   they will be his peoples,
   and God himself will be with them;
   he will wipe every tear from their eyes.
   Death will be no more;
   mourning and crying and pain will be no more,
   for the first things have passed away.'

                                                                                                                            Revelation 21
