Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals
As the parish churches for our six villages, we are here for everyone in the best and worst of times.
If you live in one of the villages, or have a connection with them, you may have the right to be married in the parish church and we would be delighted to help you celebrate your wedding and to support you as you set off on your married life together. You can find lots of excellent resources for a church wedding on the Church of England's Your Church Wedding website.
We would also love to baptise (christen) your child, and in doing so to welcome them into the family of the church, and to mark God's love for them. If you haven't been baptised yourself, it's never too late.
To discuss a baptism or wedding please contact one of the Ministry Team; Canon Alan Amos for Newington or Hartlip, Rev Liz Cox for Stockbury, Rev Jacky Davis for Upchurch or Lower Halstow and Rev Ron Partridge for Iwade. Our 'phone numbers and email addresses are all available here.
If someone you love has died recently and you would like us to take their funeral, please contact one of the Ministry Team. We are also here to offer support and a listening ear when things are tough, either at the time of bereavement, or in the months and years that follow. Please contact us if you would like to meet one of the clergy.
