St. Clement Danes was destroyed during the blitz and rebuilt years later. The church has a very diverse history and is now the official church of the RAF.
The Church can be used for many celebratory events including churches and baptisms.
Service personnel and the dependants of former serving personnel may marry at St Clement Danes. Usually, the details of the procedure are discussed with the Resident Chaplain and then an Application to Marry by Archbishop of Canterbury’s Licence is prepared by the couple and the Resident Chaplain. This is then sent to the Archbishop’s Legal Department for approval. As St Clement Danes is a Service Chapel (RAF), special arrangements exist for marriage after divorce (for service personnel) and members of other Christian denominations (Roman Catholic and Protestant Churches) may be married here by an RAF Chaplain according to the rites and ceremonies of their own churches.
Baptisms are a regular feature of our worship at st Clement Danes and you should again arrange this by discussing the details with the Resident Chaplain.
If in doubt, ask your Station Chaplain or ring the Resident Chaplain on 02072428282 and he will be pleased to advise you.
Alternatively, you can fill out an enquiry form here.
