Life Events are significant stages in Christian life. These events are termed as “Occasional Offices” for baptism, confirmation, weddings and funerals. Please contact the vicar, the Revd Margaret Young, for further information and to discuss appropriate arrangements:

Baptism is a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God's people.

A Baptism service is the welcoming of a person into the Christian community and it is available to everyone of any age.

Baptism services are normally held on a Sunday after the main morning service. Please contact the vicar for further information and to discuss arrangements.

There is no charge for a Baptism service.

Confirmation is the service when those who have previously been baptized affirm those promises and are specially prayed for by a Bishop. It is available for people from approximately 11 years old upwards to commit to a fuller membership of the church. Confirmation services in this area are held periodically throughout the year.

Please contact the vicar to discuss further.

For wedding, wedding blessing or renewal of vows ceremonies please contact the vicar who will be pleased to discuss your plans and make appropriate arrangements.

Funerals are arranged through funeral directors of your choice who then liaise with the vicar. However, if you have any questions or concerns please contact the vicar for the appropriate advice and pastoral care that you may require. See here for our local funeral directors.

When thinking about Life Events it may be useful to know whether or not you live within the parish of Easingwold with Raskelf.
