Life Events

Here for you in the highs and lows of life

Throughout its history the Church of England has connected with people as they reach major milestones in their life and at the end of it. The Church recognises that all change, even positive events like a birth or getting married, can cause stress as we adjust to our new role and question our values, priorities and belief systems.

The church offers a variety of services to mark the birth of a child, to celebrate a marriage, to mark the beginning of a journey of faith and to commemorate a life that has ended.

In order to support Christians in new and maybe difficult circumstances we have chaplains working in hospitals, schools, universities, prisons and some places of work. If you would like to make contact with a Church of England chaplain please click here.

This section has a few resources to help you, as churches, to connect with people in the highs and lows of life.
