Weddings & Baptisms

We welcome any inquiry concerning a wedding or a baptism.  There are a few guidelines you should know about as you think about your forthcoming wedding, contemplate being baptized, or having your child baptized. 
Please contact the  Rev'd. Canon Colin Luke Boswell.
Weddings
We look forward to being a part of your preparations and we want to help you in any way we can.  Once we have established that you meet the guidelines for your marriage we will .  you will see one of the clergy  for this marriage preparation.  We will talk over the expectations for your day including the wedding service and music, aspects of married life as well as any concerns you may have about marriage.  Most marriages are performed after the reading of banns.  The reading of banns is the ancient way of making public that a couple are to wed.  The banns are read out at a regular Sunday service on three occasions (usually on consecutive Sundays).   Please allow at least 3 months from first contact with us until your marriage.


Please click here for more details about getting married or having your banns read at St Augustine's.
 

 
Marriage Blessings
If you have been married in a civil ceremony and are interested in having your marriage blessed in church, we would be very happy to discuss this with you.  In the initial instance, please contact the parish priest.

Baptisms
Baptism is the very moment that a person becomes a part of the church of Jesus Christ.  It is therefore a time of committment and celebration.  Whether the baptism is for yourself or your child we will help you to prepare for this moment on your journey of life and faith.  Baptisms are usually conducted during the main worship service on a Sunday.  As there are many other things to take into account as we prepare our Sunday worship, baptisms should be arranged well ahead.  There are particular Sundays throughout the year when baptism is most appropriate.  One of the clergy will meet with you to discuss the baptism and set a date.  Please be in touch with any questions you may have.
