Baptisms are usually held during Family Services on the first Sunday of the month.

We understand that there is so much to do to prepare for a wedding that we make the church side of things as seamless and as easy as possible. Once you have agreed to be married, contact the Frank Wood Churchwarden to discuss church availability for possible dates and times and he will send the application form.
Couples will need to allow several meetings before they marry to make sure that all necessary details are addressed.
Our aim is to make sure we give you a wedding day that is truly memorable.
St Mary’s Church is particularly beautiful inside and out and many happy weddings have taken place here.

Your Funeral Director will help you arrange these, but you can call the Frank Wood Churchwarden if you have any queries. We’re also happy to conduct Memorial Services for those who have died away from the Island, or when ashes are returning to be placed in a family grave. All new graves are now situated in the Parish Cemetery opposite the church. Separate plots are available for the interment of ashes after cremation.
