Weddings, Baptism and Funerals

General information about Baptisms Weddings and Funerals in the Church of England can be found here


The Cathedral offers Baptism / Christenings for those living in the Parish and for those who feel they have a connection with the Cathedral or Chantry Chapel. The Baptism normally takes place within a service either at the Cathedral or at the Chantry Chapel, but in special circumstances can take place outside normal worship times. The best way to book a Baptism is to come along to our Sunday service and ask to speak to Canon Tony, the Canon Pastor, or to Lynne Macpherson who organises Christenings. More information here If you live outside Wakefield you might like first to contact Canon Tony by email

In addition to the usual Baptism preparation we also hold twice weekly intensive courses for those with Christian experience in other countries. Although aimed at Christians seeking safety because of their Christian faith they are also open to everyone who want to know more about faith. Normally on Mondays at 11am and Wednesdays at 11.15am. Please check with Canon Tony on 07780990354
