Baptisms, Weddings & Funerals

Having your child christened


A new baby is a major event in anyone’s life!  Here at Central, we celebrate the birth of children and each year a number of families celebrate their baby’s birth at our church.   

We offer two options to prospective families: 

Thanksgiving and Blessing   

 More information is available by clicking the links above or, contact the Secretary for more details.

Getting married

WeddingCentral is available for the celebration of Christian   weddings.  We are also able to offer Marriage Blessings following a Civil Wedding.   


Please contact the Secretary to discuss your individual requirements. 




Saying goodbye


Darwen people have found Central Church to be an appropriate venue to give thanks to God for the lives of their loved ones for many years. 

We aim to offer a personal service to all families where the lives of their loved ones can be honoured in a way appropriate to them.  As part of our ministry to our community, our rose garden at the front of the church has been set aside as a place where cremated ashes may be scattered.  The names of those whose funerals have taken place in our church or who have been connected to our fellowship may be inscribed in our Book of Remembrance. 

 You can contact us to arrange a funeral either by contacting the Secretary directly or through a local funeral director.
