Baptisms at St. James

A Baptism (Christening) is a service to admit those being baptised into the family of the church.  In order to bring a child for baptism, parents and god-parents, or in the case of adults, themselves and their sponsors make serious promises, saying that they are Christians and that they wish to nurture that faith in the context of regular attendance at their parish church.  With this in mind we would hope that you would to come to some of our church services before enquiring about Baptism, just to make sure you are happy to commit to becoming regular attenders at our church. 

As well as explaining the process for bringing a child/adult to be baptised we will want to talk to you about what it means to be Christian today and becoming part of our church family. Baptisms take place during our 9.00 am Sunday morning Services.

Funerals at St. James

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, celebrate and give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.

At St James the Great Church Bierton, we work with the bereaved and the funeral directors to arrange an appropriate service following the death of a loved one. The options broadly are to have a service in Church followed by a burial or cremation; to go straight to the Crematorium with a memorial service in Church later or simply to have a service at the Crematorium.
