Act of Thanksgiving after the Birth or Adoption of a Child: This maybe more appropriate in circumstances where parents believe that the serious act of baptism is not thought to be right for their child at that particular time or after a child already baptised is being adopted or maybe was baptised in emergency circumstances eg in hospital.
To discuss and arrange this, please leave your details here on the contact form and we will get back to you.

Marriage ceremonies at Springwell are friendly occasions when everything is done to make both wedding party and their guests feel welcome on this very special day.
Provided everyone is available on the day, you can book our organist to play for you and maybe you would like our choir to sing (well known religious or secular pieces) while you sign the register. Should you wish the church to be decorated, it is possible for you to be put in touch with our "flower ladies" to discuss fresh flower arrangements in your bridal colours.
