Christenings, weddings and funerals

Churches across the diocese are open for prayer, worship and funerals.

For all kinds of specific reasons, to do with both people and buildings, a particular church may or may not be able to open at the same time as others so if you do wish to visit your church for private prayer or wish to organise a funeral please do check with your local church.
