St Andrew's is here to help local people mark significant life events - please don't hesitate to contact us with questions about Baptism, Confirmation, First Communion, Weddings or Funerals. We will do our best to help.
Baptisms are conducted during the Service on a Sunday.
If you are interested in being baptised, or have a child who you would like to be baptised, please contact Revd Karin here or on 07971 936253.
Confirmation of Faith
If you feel you're ready for Confirmation or your children are ready to receive their First Communion, please contact the Vicar here or on 07971 936253 to arrange for preparation classes.
We would be delighted to prepare you for marriage and celebrate your special day here in this beautiful medieval church. Please contact the Vicar (email or 07971 936253) for any enquiries about weddings.
You can be married at St. Andrew’s provided that:
1. You live within the parish boundaries, and can provide proof of this where appropriate. Only one partner is required to live within the parish.
2. If you have a strong connection with the parish. There are a number of ways in which this connection is made, they are as follows:-
A. If one of you has been baptised here, or prepared for Confirmation here.
B. If one of you has ever lived in the parish for 6 months or more.
C. If one of you has ever regularly attended worship here for 6 months or more.
D. If one of you has parents who have lived here for 6 months or more during your lifetime.
E. If one of you has parents or grandparents who were married here.
3. If none of the above is the case, you may become eligible to be married in St. Andrew’s Church if it is your usual place of worship. This is recognised when you have attended the church regularly for six months and become a member on the Church Electoral Roll. We suggest a minimum of 10 times over this time period.
If you are resident in Cherry Hinton, or have a local connection, you are entitled to a funeral at St Andrew's - even if you never come to church. A church funeral allows time and space to say everything family and friends want to say, to pray, light candles and perhaps sing along to our magnificent organ. Many people find great solace in our churchyard, where ashes plots are still available. Your funeral director will help you make contact with the church.
