Services at All Saints’ Church Staplehurst
We are currently holding a Sunday Holy Communion service in church at 8 am and 11 am and can conduct Funerals and Weddings with added guidelines to keep everybody safe.
COVID 19 advice for Clergy Conducting Weddings
COVID 19 advice for Clergy Conducting Baptisms
We advise wearing face masks but it’s not obligatory.
We can play the organ or/and use the CD Sound system and are able to let a soloist sing during the service. We are not yet able to sing all together.
Often people ask me if they have to be churchgoers in order to use the church. The answer is no you don’t. You don’t have to be baptised or confirmed to get married in church either or to have your child baptised.
All Saints Church is your Parish Church regardless of your beliefs. You actually have a legal right to use the church. The only thing to bear in mind is that the Church of England has its own legal framework, like for example the Churchyard Regulations that differ from what is permitted in cemeteries. Its most current version is the Canterbury Churchyard regulations 2015, which you can find on the internet.
As everything is changing everywhere due to the pandemic and people like to know fees before making contact.
Please have a look at fees on our Downloads page. There are no statutory fees for baptisms apart from the certificate, which is not obligatory to have.
If you have any questions, please either ring me on 01580891258 or e-mail me on allsaintsstaplehurst.enterprise.net
With kind wishes, Silke
