Table of Fees

The statutory fees for Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals are determined each year by Government and the Church of England.  Additional parochial fees are calculated to cover the costs of extra services such as the organist and heating through the winter months.

For Baptisms and Weddings, the fees (where applicable) are paid direct to the Parish Office.  For Funerals they are paid via the funeral director.

1. Incumbent’s Fee

This is not received my the minister conducting the service, but returned to the Church of England’s central funds as a contribution towards the annual stipend of the clergy.

2. Minister’s Expenses

This is a standard figure to cover the cost of travel to and from the service, and any pastoral visits made before or after.

3. Organ Maintenance

Since 2009 we have made an additional charge as a contribution the expected costs of organ maintenance (an estimated £15,000 in January 2010).
