We love to celebrate with men and women as they come to live under the covenant of marriage, one of the most significant events in life. The minister will be happy to discuss arrangements with couples who should normally give a minimum of 6 months’ notice. Our minister would not normally attend receptions.
BAPTISMS & THANKSGIVINGS
Children bring a great deal of joy to the church as well as their parents. We seek to work with integrity so that those who choose the sacrament of Baptism do so as a genuine profession of their Christian faith. Where the sacrament is not appropriate we offer a service of Thanksgiving. We normally hold baptisms and Thanksgivings alternately on the second Sunday of the month again by arrangement with the minister.
Let’s be honest, bereavement is horrible. But in Orangefield the minister will seek to arrange a funeral that is appropriate for the family and circumstances. We are happy to offer the use of the church for a service of thanksgiving for a loved one and the minister will help the family organise this.
We can offer catering after a funeral service for a small charge, and we also run a Griefshare course for anyone going through bereavement, and details of this can be had from the church office.
For all of these things either speak to the minister personally or ring the office on 028 90799391 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
