Weddings and Baptisms at St. Alban's
Every year, many people choose to get married at St. Alban's. We want to make your wedding personal and memorable for you. Churches are special places and there are some things about a church wedding that you just can't get anywhere else.
A church wedding will add a spiritual dimension to your marriage. The ceremony includes God and looks to him for help and guidance. God's blessing is the main attraction for many couples, whatever their beliefs.
You can make amazing vows, or promises, in a church. You can only make vows this big in a church. These vows, made in public, will help you to stay together and grow together. God and your church are there for you to help you keep your vows.
The Vicar has a very particular role to play in your wedding. They can blend ancient tradition and modern experience to reflect your story. Because of the relationship with the Vicar, your wedding can be made personal, memorable, meaningful and beautiful.
For some people, a church simply seems like the proper place to get married. Churches can be described as 'peaceful', 'serene', or having an atmosphere that makes marrying there a particularly special experience.

Baptism marks the start of a Christian journey. At St. Alban's, we baptise into the Christian faith both children and adults. If you are an adult, baptism is a public sign of your Christian commitment. To bring your child for baptism in the Church means you want to bring them up in the Christian faith.
Christians believe that God loved the world so much that he sent Jesus his son to put right all the things in the world that had gone wrong and which separated us from God. Jesus taught us that God loves us and wants us to spend time with him. In fact, God loves us so much that Jesus died on the cross so that we might be reconciled to him.
At your/your child's baptism you're saying that this is your faith, and where children are concerned, youre promising to help them to know Jesus for themselves, by praying for them and bringing them to Church.
If you would like to book a baptism in the church, please contact our assistant priest, Rev'd Janet Owens on 0161 485 6677.
