If a loved-one has died, a funeral led by a Church of England minister can be held in a church or at a crematorium.  The minister will be there to support you through your farewell.


Churches are special places to get married.  The Parish of Warblington with Emsworth has two churches, St Thomas à Becket, located in the beautiful rural surroundings of the Warblington Conservation Area and St James, situated in the heart of the historic coastal town of Emsworth.


Baptism (also known as Christening) is open to anyone and both babies, children or adults can be baptised.  This is the first step on a journey with God, often supported by parents, godparents, friends, family and the church.  If you are interested in Baptism for yourself or for your child, please find out more below.
