Weddings and Baptisms


Everyone who either lives in the parish, is a worshipping member of the congregation (or would like to become one), or has a close family connection with St Mary's Shaw is eligible to get married at this beautiful church, and we are looking forward to hosting this special occasion for you.  

For further information or to book your date* please call Sally on 01635 40450

We welcome all local families to have their children baptised, and we are delighted when adults enquire about being baptised themselves. Baptisms normally take place during our 10am Sunday service, or in the form of a Baptism service on second and fourth Sundays at 12.15 or 1.15pm.

For further information or to book a date please call Sally on 01635 40450 or Email

Once you have confirmed a date for your Baptism at the church office you can download an application form from here:

Thanksgiving service

You may like to have a Thanksgiving service for your child, especially if you had a difficult pregnancy or birth, or maybe even just because you don't yet feel ready to bring your child to church for an actual Baptism. We can also offer this type of service for you. More information may be obtained by calling or emailing us.

We've been encouraging people holding events such as Weddings, Baptisms and Thanksgivings to ask their guests to bring along a few items for the Food Bank, (if they do not neccessarily want gifts for themselves) for some time now. This is proving extremely popular and is great way to make a difference to the needy in our community. We hope that you agree.

Thank You
