The Churches of

Hipswell Parish

Church Bookings

Baptisms and weddings are normally booked following contact with the Vicar (Revd Andrew Cromarty) - see Contacts page for details. We welcome all enquiries for baptism and marriage. If you wish to marry, have been previously married, or live outside the parish boundary, the Vicar will discuss the possibilities with you personally.

We encourage those wishing to be baptised, or to have family members baptised, to attend church at either St Cuthbert's or St John's before submitting a baptism application form. Baptisms generally take place outside of the normal Sunday morning services. Because of the larger numbers generally attending, baptisms generally take place in the early afternoons - at St John's, Hipswell, on the first Sunday of the month, and at St Cuthbert's, Colburn, on the third Sunday of the month. Parents and godparents meet with the Vicar for baptism preparation before baptism services.

Funerals are normally arranged with the Vicar through the offices of a Funeral Director. Anyone living within the parish boundaries may have a funeral service in church, and others living outside the parish, also, by negotiation.

For further information please contact the Vicar - as before, for contact details please refer to the Contacts page.
