Baptisms & Confirmation


Holy Baptism.

We are delighted if you are considering baptising your child at St Paul's Church Rawtenstall. Baptism is a way to thank God for the life of your child; whilst acknowledging that you wish to bring up your child as a Christian and to seek the support of the church.

If you are a parent, or a prospective god parent, and want to find out more about Holy Baptism, the service and what is involved then please visit the Church of England website.

If you wish to arrange a service for the baptism of your child at St Paul's please contact the Vicar, Chris Casey, to arrange a inital visit.



If you wish to explore confirmation, the Reverend will invite you to attend a local course to give you the opportunity to explore your faith with others who are also considering conformation before committing your life to be a disciple of Christ.

Enquiries from adults who have not been baptised are welcome, as are requests for Confirmation from candidates who are aged 11 and over.

If you wish to find out more about confirmation please visit the Church of England website, or contact the Vicar, Chris Casey.



A church wedding is a great way to celebrate a couple's life-long commitment to eachother, endorsed by their family, friends and the wider church community and witnessed in front of God. St Paul's Church would like to support you in this endeavour.

We can provide a traditional church venue. For more information about how to arrange a wedding at St Paul's Church Rawtenstall please contact the Vicar, Chris Casey.

To find out more about what is involved in arranging a church wedding, planning for the big day and understanding how the church can help you please visit the Church of England's wedding website.

Funerals can be a quiet affair or involve a large gathering of people. They are an opportunity for people to share their grief, to give thanks for the life of an individual who has recently died and to commit their soul to God. St Paul's Church can arrange a funeral service, regardless of whether or not they attended church.

If you have recently lost a loved one and wish to arrange a funeral service at St Paul's Church please contact the Vicar, Chris Casey.

For more information about how to plan a funeral, the content of the service, and for a selection of comforting psalms and prayers please visit the Church of England website.

In April 2017 St Paul's became a united benefice with St Mary’s Rawtenstall, (just down the valley from us) and in 2019 will also join with St Mary & All Saints (just up the valley from us!).

We have a great relationship with our church school, St Paul’s Constable Lee, (rated as a ‘Good’ school by OfSTED) and often appear in each others' life.Chris and Jane

Everyone is welcome to join us as we seek to grow more like Jesus day by day; if you are not perfect then you’ll fit in really well!
