Worship and Events


Daily Prayer

The Church of England has a pattern of daily morning, evening and night prayer. Each day, and each time of day, uses different readings from the Bible, and different prayers.

Thinking About Getting Married At Saint Aidan’s

The Bride at St Aidans church BamburghThe Parish Church of St Aidan’s offers a splendid venue to celebrate your marriage with prayerfulness and dignity in a fabulous setting.

There are several ways that you can be legally married in the Parish Church of St Aidan’s.

These are the two simplest:

  • If one of you live in the parish, then you can be married by banns
  • If you have a “Qualifying Connection” with the parish, then again you can be married by banns

If neither of these applies to you then it may be possible for you to be married by licence and the first step is to have a conversation with the Vicar.

If you are not able to marry in the church it may still be possible to have a “blessing” service, Prayers and Dedication after a Civil Marriage and, perhaps after a civil ceremony nearby, this is a route that you will be happy with.

If you thinking about getting married in the Church of England, then there are plenty of resources from which you can draw. This web site for instance www.yourchurchwedding.org/project/

Remember, the first real step is to be in contact with the Vicar and to talk things through with him. He will also be able to advise you of available dates and the current fee for weddings.

Thinking About Having Your Child Baptised At Saint Aidan's

Baptism Group inside St Aidans church BamburghWe would be delighted to baptise your child into the Christian faith here at Saint Aidan’s. If you live within the parish or have a substantial connection with the parish church, then do please be in contact with the Vicar to talk about this possibility. If you do not live within the parish then it is important that you seek the good will of your own parish priest first.





Funerals And Memorial Services

Memorial Service While we recognise that Bamburgh has a very special place in the hearts of many people, not everyone is legally entitled to be buried in our churchyard. A copy of our churchyard policy is available for download… along with a copy of Memorials Intro...

However it may be that it is appropriate for the funeral service to be held in St Aidan’s, followed by a committal elsewhere, or else to have cremated remains (ashes) buried or scattered here, perhaps after a memorial service. If you are planning your own funeral, or coping with the death of a loved one, then please do talk with the vicar about these possibilities.
