Life Events; Baptisms, Confimations, Weddings and Funerals

Thank you for visiting our website. We are a family of two churches in South Croydon (St Peter’s and St Augustine’s). Whatever brings you here, we hope that you will find all the information you need. If not, please do not hesitate to get in touch – or, better still, come and see us!

Life events:

 

Whatever the stage of life’s journey, your local churches are here to support you. Both St Peter’s and St Augustine’s are available for baptisms (christenings), weddings and funerals. Our ministers also conduct funerals in cemeteries and crematoria.

 

Before you read any further, it is important to confirm whether you live in St Peter’s parish, St Augustine’s parish, or another parish. You can find out by entering your address at https://www.achurchnearyou.com.

 

Baptisms (christenings) mark the beginning of the Christian journey and can take place at any age. To be eligible for baptism in one of our churches, you must either live in the parish or attend for at least six months.

CONFIRMATION FORM

Weddings join two people together in marriage, and we will help you prepare for the service and your lives together. To be eligible to marry in one of our churches, you must either live in the parish, attend for six months, or have another ‘qualifying connection’ (see our application form for full details). 

 

Please return this form to office@southcroydonbenefice.org.uk, or post to the Benefice Administrator, c/o St Augustine’s Church, St Augustine’s Avenue, South Croydon, CR2 6BA.

 

Same-sex couples are most welcome in our churches, but we regret that (owing to Church of England rules and government legislation) we are unable to offer same-sex marriages at present.

If you are marrying in another Church of England parish, but live in St Peter’s parish or St Augustine’s parish, we can call Banns of Marriage for you. Please return this form to office@southcroydonbenefice.org.uk, or post to the Benefice Administrator, c/o St Augustine’s Church, St Augustine’s Avenue, South Croydon, CR2 6BA.

Funerals mark the end of a person’s life. They are an opportunity to pray for the deceased, to celebrate all that was good in their life, and bring comfort to each other in our grief.


If you are arranging a funeral for someone who lived in St Peter’s parish or St Augustine’s parish, or who had a link to one of our churches, please contact us on 020 8688 4715, or by email to office@southcroydonbenefice.org.uk. You should tell the funeral director that you would like us to take the service.


We can offer services in our churches, at a cemetery, or at a crematorium, but please note that we do not have any space for burials in our churchyards.


Family History and Replacement Certificates:

 

Most of our records are stored at the Surrey History Centre in Woking (https://www.surreyarchives.org.uk). You can find material relating to our churches by searching the catalogue for ‘South Croydon St Augustine’ or ‘Croydon St Peter’.

 

If you need a replacement marriage certificate, please contact Croydon Register Office as we are no longer permitted to issue duplicates. For a replacement baptism certificate, please contact us on 020 8688 4715, or send an email to office@southcroydonbenefice.org.uk.

 

For enquiries about graves at St Peter’s, please contact us on 020 8688 4715, or send an email to office@southcroydonbenefice.org.uk. St Augustine’s does not have a graveyard.
