Life Events

Here for you in the highs and lows of life

Throughout its history, the Church of England has connected with people as they reach major milestones over the course of their lives and at the end of them. The Church recognises that all change, even positive events like a birth or marriage, can cause stress as new roles are adjusted to and values, priorities, and belief systems are brought into question.

The church offers a variety of services - to mark the birth of a child, to celebrate a marriage, to mark the beginning of a journey of faith, and to commemorate a life that has ended. 

To find out more, there is information in the sections below, or you could contact a church local to you. You can search with your postcode or location on the A Church Near You website, to find CofE churches in your community.

In order to support Christians in new and maybe difficult circumstances, we have chaplains working in hospitals, schools, universities, prisons, and some places of work. If you would like to make contact with a Church of England chaplain, please click here.
