Our warmest congratulations to you if you have recently experienced the joy and wonder of the arrival of a new child. You may be looking for a way to thank God for giving you such an amazing gift.

The birth of a baby and the start of a new life is, without a doubt, an event of the highest significance. As is the case with the other great life events of marriage and death, the Church of England has a particular role in helping the people of this country mark these moments if they so wish.

Here in Modbury Mission Community we are delighted to welcome families who seek to mark a new arrival. We offer either a Thanksgiving for the Birth of a Child or a Baptism (or both).


A marriage service, wherever it is held, is a public declaration of love and commitment to your partner. If you choose to get married in church, there is the added dimension of asking for God’s blessing upon your marriage. God cares about you and His strength and guidance is available to you always.


A funeral is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief and to give thanks for the life of someone they love.

Your Funeral Director will take care of most aspects of the funeral arrangements at this difficult time. Our experience tells us that some additional information can be helpful.
