Our Village Service is led by members of our congregation and is a “Service of the Word”. It follows a regular format which provides the opportunity for lay people to lead fellow church members in worshipping God using an approved format. This includes prayers, hymns, readings from Holy Scripture, a talk and an authorised creed stating our beliefs. Towards the end of this service we are joined by the Sunday school who share with us their learning for that session.
Situated in the heart of Warwickshire, the whole of the village and its church are within Warwickshire Green Belt. The church stands on a plateau 70 feet above the River Sowe to the north and is somewhat on the edge of the village, which was originally grouped near it but has now spread down the hill towards Coventry. It is one of the oldest inhabited places in the country.
If you live in one of our three parishes and would like to have your child baptized, please call the Rector to arrange a meeting. This will usually take place at the Vicarage in Ryton. He would like to see both parents if possible, and the child too!
If you live outside Baginton, Bubbenhall and Ryton, we may be able to baptize your child with the agreement of the church in the parish where you live.
If you are a 40% tax payer, you can reclaim higher rate tax on everything you give.
If you have to arrange a funeral, you have a number of choices, which a Funeral Director will put before you. If you decide that you would like a Christian minister to preside at the funeral, you may want to ask for a funeral in church or at a crematorium or cemetery, or a funeral beginning in church and ending with a committal at a crematorium or cemetery. The service in church allows you more time and you may wish to consider that.
