Baptism (also known as Christening) is available at St Michael's to those who live in the district or have a long-standing connection with the church. We welcome families with babies or young children, older children and adults. Although for teenagers and adults, Baptism is usually associated with confirmation.

At the baptism service parents and Godparents are called upon to promise to bring their children up as Christians and to declare their own belief in the Christian faith.

If you would like to discover more, please contact our Baptism Team Co-ordinator, Suzanne Sapiano through the Contact us page. Alternatively, Suzanne will be pleased to talk with you in person, just head over to one of our Sunday morning services. 



For those baptised in infancy the service of Confirmation is an opportunity for both adults and children to 'confirm' their own personal faith in Jesus Christ. In preparation for this, a series of meetings take place to explore in greater depth the nature of the Christian faith. There is no pass or fail just an honest desire to walk as a disciple of Christ and for this journey to move ever forward.

If you're interested in Confirmation why not come along to one of our services and speak with a member of the clergy or our ministry team. Alternatively you can get in touch by our Contact us page.



We believe that marriage is a gift from God. In the marriage ceremony, a man and woman make a public declaration of lifelong commitment to love each other, come what may. Many couples choose to be married in church because they wish to demonstrate before God that they are serious about the vows they are taking. When we invite God to be a part of this special day, we are asking for his blessing and strength to help us live out our promises. If you have any questions please contact our wedding coordinators through the contact us page. If you decide to get married at St Michael's, as hundreds of couples have done for centuries, we will do all that we can to make your day special.


At St Michael's, we recognise that grief is a natural response to loss, it's emotional suffering you feel when something or someone you love is taken away. The death of a loved one is often the most intense type of grief we feel – but whatever your loss, it's personal to you.

No matter how prepared we may think we are, death turns our world upside down. There are many questions that our team of experienced funeral ministers will help you and your family with along this journey that you find yourselves on. It is a journey we share with you offering support, help and guidance, together making a personal funeral service fitting for your loved one which gives thanks and celebrates their life.
