Wedding & Baptism
We are delighted that you are thinking of being married at St Mark's Kempshott. To be married in church you do not have to be baptised or a regular attender. Though, of course, a church wedding does include that vital dimension of seeking God’s blessing not only on your wedding day but throughout your married life.
For such a special day, we offer a special place and we would love to help you plan a personal, meaningful and spiritual church wedding. We would also love to offer you a great start to your marriage beforehand through our marriage preparation evenings.
If you would like to marry in another parish and are resident in Kempshott we will need to read your "banns of marriage". Please contact the parish office for more information.

Baptism at St Mark's Kempshott
We are delighted that you are considering baptism (or christening as it is sometimes called) here at St Mark's. Baptism is the start of a lifelong journey following Jesus belonging to His family which is called the church.
To help you prepare for this commitment we meet with you a couple of times to prepare. Please do speak to us first before you consider dates or select God parents. We meet with you in your home to give time and opportunity to explore the Christian faith.
For those older children, young people and adults who were not baptised as a child and have decided they are ready to follow Jesus we are delighted to explore baptism together. These baptisms are usually done through full immersion and feature in our main service.
We also hold services of thanksgiving for those who do not wish to have their baby or child baptised as an infant, but want to thank God publicly for their child and ask His blessing on them and the family.
