BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS & FUNERALS
Welcome to your parish church!
We are here to support you in life's great moments.
Whether it is Christening a baby, getting married or dealing with a bereavement, we are here to help. Suppose you want to enquire about baptisms, weddings or anything to do with funerals.
Please make an enquiry through one of the forms below.
Anyone who lives within one of our parishes is eligible to be baptised or have their children baptised. Our policy is for baptism to occur during one of our regular Sunday services. Please complete the application form, and we will contact you. If you would like more information about what baptism involves, the Church of England has useful resources which you can be https://www.churchofengland.org/life-events/christenings
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.
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...
Please complete the Marriage Enquiry Form
Or if you are living in our parish and wish to marry in another church, you can complete Banns of Marriage Enquiry Form.
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 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.

We always want to be part of our communities and we like to hear from you,
