Arranging a Wedding, Christening or Funeral
If you would like to arrange a wedding in any of our beautiful churches in an area of outstanding natural beauty, please contact the parish office by emailing email@example.com. You can download a banns/wedding application form here to complete and email to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Unit 15, Park Barn, Station Road, Smeeth TN25 6SX. Please do contact us to arrange a suitable date first before booking a venue etc, as we might not be able to accommodate that date.
Please note: you need to have a qualifying connection with the Parish (e.g. one of the couple resident here or baptised/confirmed here, or parents resident here, or parents/grandparents married here) or attend worship here regularly for six months in order to be married in our churches, unless you have a special licence which are given only in appropriate circumstances. Please talk to us!
If you are marrying in another parish church but are resident in the Stour Downs Parish, you will need to contact the parish office to arrange your banns being read before your wedding.
To arrange a Christening, please get in touch by emailing email@example.com. You can download a christening enquiry form here to email to complete and to firstname.lastname@example.org or post to Unit 15, Park Barn, Station Road, Smeeth TN25 6SX. Please do contact us to arrange a suitable date .
If you would like to arrange a funeral for a loved one, please contact the parish office - email email@example.com, or speak with Rev Chris on 07526688826/ email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is usually something that a funeral director will organise for you.
