Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals  

The Church of England aims to be ‘A Christian Presence in every community.’  It is one of the great privileges of the Church to accompany, support, and bless people at some of the most intimate moments of their lives, whether moments of great celebration, or moments of deep sadness and loss.  

St Thomas’ Church is part of the Church of England.  As such, we offer baptisms, weddings, and funerals to people who live within the parish of St Thomas’, or who attend St Thomas’ Church, or have another ‘Qualifying Connection’ to St Thomas’ Church.   The Church of England Churches in the Lancaster and Morecambe deanery have an informal agreement to offer baptism and funerals on the basis of the same ‘Qualifying Connections’ that are used for weddings.  

To find out whether you have a ‘Qualifying Connection’ to St Thomas’ Church, visit and visit the ‘Find a Church’ page, which includes a handy postcode checker.  
If you have a ‘Qualifying Connection’ and would like to enquire about having a baptism, wedding, or funeral service held at St Thomas’ Church, or conducted by a member of the St Thomas’ team, please Contact Us.
