Having your child baptised is a special day that is shared with family and friends and is the start of your child’s first steps on an amazing journey with God. Should you wish to arrange for your child to be baptised we would be really pleased to hear from you.


Marrying in a church or cathedral is special and unique – the prayers, promises and the whole service of celebration become part of your marriage, on the day itself and beyond. If you have just got engaged or want to renew your marriage vows please do contact us so that we can help you start to plan your church wedding and celebrations.


When someone dies there is so much to think about and organise and we understand how difficult this can be. Should you wish to talk to a member of our clergy please do contact us via the Minster Centre so that we can support you, and help you say your final goodbye in a way that is right for you.
