Weddings at St James' Church

St. James’ is the perfect place for a wedding; your special service in a beautiful village church setting. Our Organist and Choir can offer wonderful music if you would like it.

The Abinger Hatch pub offers a fabulous reception venue and there is accommodation nearby.

We would love to talk to you more about ideas for your wedding.



At its christening, your child will be baptised; the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, friends, family and the church. You don’t have to have been christened yourself, and you don’t have to have been a regular churchgoer. 

Contact us here if you would like more details.



Each person is unique – in personality and in life experience. 

A Church of England funeral allows you to give thanks for the unique person you knew and loved in a way that gives comfort and hope.

Please get in touch to find out how we can help.
