Baptisms normally take place at Oakham on the fourth Sunday of the month (during the 10:30am Family Service), or at 12.30pm on the second Sunday. In the villages, Baptism services are arranged individually, and can be part of the main service, or as a separate service. Initial enquiries should be made either to the Team Office (01572 724007), or to the Team Rector (for Oakham) or Team Vicars (for the villages) – please see the Who’s Who page for full contact details.

The Church of England Christenings web page below gives useful advice on planning a baptism.



Wherever and whenever you choose to get married, you make a public declaration of life-long commitment to love each other faithfully and take on a whole new legal status as husband and wife.

It is a considerable commitment to make. Whether you choose to marry in a civil venue, or in a religious context of any faith, around 85% of married couples agree: marriage is the most serious decision of your life!

The Church of England thoroughly believes in marriage for the wellbeing of individuals and society. If you have found ‘the one’, and you are committed to each other in every respect, there is so much more adventure ahead. We would be thrilled to be part of that adventure too.
