When a couple comes to be married in the Church, it should mean that they desire the blessing of God on their marriage and that they want to begin their life together in God’s sight and God’s presence. Weddings at St Peter’s use the Rites of the Anglican Church, a Christian service reflecting the joy and dignity of the occasion. If you would like to discuss having your wedding at St Peter’s, please contact Rev’d Tim at email@example.com or on 0401 289 919.
In accordance with Christian custom funeral rites are conducted in St Peter’s Church. The rector (or another priest associated with the parish) usually officiates at them.
The service follows Anglican rites though there are some options: the service in church followed by the burial in a cemetery; the service in church followed by a brief service of committal at the crematorium; the service in church with this including the prayers of committal. When this is done there is no religious rite at the crematorium and neither priest nor mourners go to the crematorium.
If you wish to arrange a funeral at St Peter’s, please ring the Rev’d Tim on 0401 289 919. Otherwise you may ask the funeral director to make the initial contact with him.
