Baptisms

We baptise the children of church members here at Great Western Park Church, and those who openly profess Christian faith, seek to follow Christ and bring up their children as Christians.

Weddings

We would be delighted to be involved in your wedding as your local church.

Funerals

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping.

Weddings

We would be delighted to be involved in your wedding as your local church. The Marriage law allows you to get married in a church if you have some links to the parish. The rules around this are a bit complex, so if you need help, please contact the administrator of All Saints Church on 01235 510865 or administrator@didcotallsaintshall.org.uk, or email Mark Bodeker at markbodeker@gwpchurch.org.uk.

Baptisms

Baptism is important. It is a sign of being made one with Christ and becoming a member of his body. It is an act of Christian initiation. It is not simply a symbol, a kind of visual aid, but is also a sacrament, a visible sign of an inward, spiritual grace. Baptism is a one-off event offered to infants, children, and adults.  

Parents and Godparents at that service make a statement of their belief in God, and their acceptance of Jesus Christ as their saviour and Lord. They promise to pray for their child (or Godchild), to teach them in the Christian faith and to bring them up within the local church congregation. Baptism services follow time spent in preparation with the minister learning about the Christian faith and their commitment through baptism.

Funerals

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends gather to express grief, give thanks for the life lived, and commend the person to God’s keeping. This can be a quiet, reflective occasion, or a large occasion in a packed church.

If you wish to arrange a funeral, please get in touch.
