Life Events

Whether it is the birth of a new child, the marriage of two partners, or the passing on of a loved one St. John’s offers a range of liturgical support and celebrations for all the important events in your life.

If you are looking for a warm, inviting location for a Wedding or Same-Sex Union; if you are looking to take the next step of on your faith journey through Baptism, First Communion, or Confirmation; or if you need a supportive or solemn place for a funeral or celebration of life, St. John’s is able to provide the support you need.

For more information about how St. John’s can play a part in your life events, please contact the church office or speak to one of our clergy.


Baptism is about becoming a faithful practicing member of a church so it makes sense to be baptized where you will be attending and involved.  To learn more about baptism and the promises you will make for yourself or on behalf of your child, you can read our short guide to baptism.

Weddings rainbow

These are usually performed by one of our licenced clergy and are an opportunity to make life-commitments in front of the whole community and to recall the blessing of God in all aspects of our lives.


Funerals provide an important opportunity to celebrate the life of the deceased and to say goodbye.  As Christians, funerals are the time when we remember the hope of eternal life with those we love.  To learn more about funerals, you can read our Funeral Handbook.
