St Martin's, Brasted


Special services

Feel free to ring (01959 565829) or email me with any enquiries. Linda Green, Rector.


Baptisms

If you live here or have close ties or a link with Brasted we will be delighted to baptise you or your child. Part of the meaning of baptism is to become a part of the Christian church, locally as well as worldwide, and for this reason some baptisms take place within our main Sunday service. This is so that the church can welcome the newly baptised to the community of St Martin's at the beginning of their journey of faith.

Although we cannot provide individual, private baptisms, for those who would prefer a baptism service that is not part of our main Sunday service, we offer a baptism service usually on the first Sunday of the month at 11.30am, for no more than three families on any one occasion.

If you would like to arrange a baptism please contact the Rector.


Weddings

A wedding is always a great celebration and we will be pleased to welcome you to St Martin's Church for your wedding. Weddings can take place at St Martin's if either bride or groom lives in the ecclesiastical parish of Brasted or if either is on the church's electoral roll; or if either can show a "qualifying connection" with the parish. Please contact the Rector to discuss further.


Funerals

Arranging a funeral can be a difficult time and we aim at St Martin’s to make this as worry free as possible for you to ensure you can have a meaningful service that meets your requirements in St Martin's or at a crematorium. Please contact the Rector to talk through what you require or for pastoral support following the death of a loved one.
