Special Services

Christchurch is an open, broad, and welcoming Church. As well as the usual Baptisms, Marriages and funerals we are happy to talk about helping to celebrate other life events.
Our minister has experience of
 # the re-affirmation of marriage vows

 # thanksgivings and celebrations of relationships
 # house and new home blessings
 # pilgrimages and remembrances that mark journeys through grief and difficulty.

​We are not yet able to host same sex marriages (our parent denominations are discussing this and we hope to be able to host them within a year or two), but can offer Thanksgiving and Celebration services for weddings previously solemnised elsewhere.  

Sam's baptism in May 2009Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals

We welcome all who wish to use our church to hold a special service, whether it be welcoming a child by dedication or baptism, wanting to get married, or to hold a funeral service of celebration or remembrance.

You do not have to be a member of the church.

Child dedication or baptisms are often held at one of our Sunday morning services, and we will ensure that it will be a special day for the family.

Jude & Robin's Wedding January 2010

Weddings and funerals are usually arranged at other times to suit the family circumstances.

If you wish, we can record the service and will be happy to give you a cassette tape, CD or MP3 file as a memento of your time with us.

Please contact us, or call our minister Rob Hilton directly, to discuss your individual needs - we welcome all who have a desire to include God in their special times.
