Life Events

Baptism

Baptism, also known as Christening, is a tremendously important step in the life of a child or an adult. A baptism is a time of great joy for family and friends. It is also an opportunity for the church to support and welcome the candidates as they begin their Christian journey. Please look at this article on the Church of England web site for a detailed background before you contact us

Baptisms take place in our normal services, generally at the Sunday morning 10.30 a.m. service.

Confirmation

Confirmation is the way we make for ourselves the promises made on our behalf if we were baptised as babies. If you haven’t already been baptised, then that can happen at around the same time as Confirmation. 

It's a wonderful opportunity for anyone (aged from about 10 - 100) to say their own public 'YES' to being a Christian for life! Confirmation services for our local church area (Deanery) are held in the Autumn at one of the Anglican churches in Malvern. 

Because you make important promises when you’re Confirmed, you need to know what it’s all about. Find out more from this Church of England article and when you want to find out more contact us. (If you are under 18, please ask for the agreement of your parent/guardian.)

Weddings

Great Malvern Priory is a wonderful and inspiring place to begin your married life and we hope we can help to make your wedding very special and your marriage lifelong. It is important to plan and to carefully prepare for this event. 

We recommend that you read this article on the Church of England web site for a detailed background. Then please contact us.

Funerals

Our clergy are privileged to conduct the funerals and celebrate the lives of many of our community each year. The Priory is an ancient place of prayer and hope and is a great comfort to families at a difficult time. We are also very happy to conduct services for people with significant links to the town, both present or in the past. Please look at the Church of England website for more background information and then contact us

Our Clergy would consider it an honour to visit a loved one who is drawing close to the end of their life, to pray and to bring comfort. They are also available to visit confidentially and talk about your own situation.
