Weddings, Baptisms, and Funerals

Your Wedding

Are you thinking of a wedding blessing in the Costa Brava?  Whether you are just dreaming of a church wedding, or whether your plans are well advanced, the church is here to help you.  There is something special about a church wedding that sets it apart from getting married anywhere else, however romantic.

It’s your wedding , but we can work with you to make it a very “special day” –  personal, meaningful, spiritual and beautiful.
Unfortunately, Spanish law does not allow us to perform the legal formalities, as we do in the UK,  you will need to complete a civil ceremony before we can perform a blessing.
Since the blessing is not a legal ceremony we can change the service to suit your needs.  You may want to use the  traditional marriage service with traditional hymns and prayers. You may want to write your own vows and choose music that is important to you both.  Readings can be from the Bible or from other sources.
For such a special day, we offer a special venue in one of our churches, but if you prefer we are able to conduct ceremonies in a place of your choosing.
All you need to do is plan it and discuss it with us.
More information to help you to plan a meaningful and beautiful church wedding can be found on the Church of England’s weddings web site.

Would you like to renew your wedding vows?

Many couples like the idea of renewing their marriage vows to celebrate a special anniversary or to mark the end of a difficult time. We can work with you to arrange  a service for you either in church or in any other venue.

 

Baptism

 

In the Church of England we baptise young children and babies – this is often known as “Christening”.  In a Christening we are thanking God for the gift of life and for his love for our child and we promise to help our child follow in the Christian way.
Christenings take place during our normal Sunday services.  If you would like your child baptised please contact us.

 

Funerals

It is important to celebrate the life of someone who has died and a funeral is the place for that.  A funeral marks the end of a human life on earth.  Friends and family come together to express their grief, to give thanks for a person’s earthly life and commend them into God’s keeping.  We are able to conduct a funeral service for you in any part of the Costa Brava and if there is any other way in which we can help please let us know.

 

cemetery

Some times people want to hold a memorial service for a loved one who has died.  This is also possible and we would be very pleased to help you to have a service which is healing and memorable for you.
