Baptisms & Weddings


Baptisms are usually conducted on a Sunday after the morning Eucharist service, though this may vary depending on the time of year and planned services, we are as flexible as possible when specific dates or times are requested.

There is a warm welcome to all those wanting to have their child Christened at St Andrew and to welcome new members to our family of God in Chilton Moor.

No fee is requested for a Christening. However, a collection plate is available gives an opportunity for parents, family and friends to make a thank you offering for the work of the church. Adults and teenagers who come to faith can also be baptised. Please contact the vicar to check which dates are available: Rev. John M: 07525478336 H: 0191 3882228 E: or Rev Tony H: 0191 5120587 E: or pop along to our office hour on a Sunday morning after the service at 11.15am.

St Andrew is wonderful choice for your wedding venue. Weddings are conducted throughout the year and may be held on any day of the week. Within legal limits the wedding service can be structured to meet each individual couple’s needs.

A church wedding gives you the opportunity to celebrate your love and commitment by making some amazing promises to each other and invites God to bless your future life together. We are always delighted to welcome enquiries about getting married here whether or not you attend church.
