Life Events


The Clergy and others in the Parish of Swaythling are always ready to discuss any of these very special events with you, so that we can work together to make them the way you would like them.


Your baby or child can be baptised in churches across the Diocese in a service that is often called a christening. This is a service in which parents thank God for his gift of life and make a decision to start their child on a journey of faith. Find out more about Baptisms in the Parish


Thinking about getting married? Congratulations!

Getting married in church is a sign to your friends, family and most importantly to each other that you are ready to make a public declaration of love and commitment in front of those who love you and are part of your life together, including God. Find out more about Weddings in the Parish


A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world. Find out more about Funerals in the Parish
