BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS & FUNERALS
Welcome to your parish church! We are here to support you in life's great moments. Whether its Christening a baby, getting married or dealing with a bereavement, we are here to help. If you want to enquire about baptisms, weddings or anything to do with funerals please phone either Marion or Andy. Contact details are here
The birth of a child is one of life's great moments. Bringing a baby to church for a baptism (or 'christening') is a wonderful way to mark that moment.
We are always pleased to be approached to baptise babies, children )or even adults).
Do feel free to contact us to talk through the options for a baptism service. We can work with you to create a memorable occasion that will live long in the memory of you and your family.
A wedding is a sign of commitment for a couple, and even though it is now possible to get married in a wide range of venues, there is still something powerful and moving about getting married in a church.
If you live in Shelf or Buttershaw, or have a family connection to the area, then we warmly invite you to have your wedding in one of our churches. To find out if you live in the parish simply go to HERE and put your post code into the parish finder and that will show you a map of which parish you live in.
Contact us at an early stage - we can put dates in the diary well in advance, so that your special date is reserved. We will then be able to work with you to help plan a most wonderful and special day...
Although we don't like to think of it, all of us will one day find ourselves arranging a funeral service to mark the passing of a human life.
Whilst you can have a perfectly good funeral without using a church, there are many good reasons to consider having this most important occasion in church.
For all sorts of practical and spiritual reasons we encourage people in Shelf and Buttershaw to have funeral services in one of our churches.
Careful, thoughtful planning, spiritual comfort and a flexible approach to funerals are on offer - please make contact if we can help.
