Baptism


Baptism, or 'Christening' as it is sometimes called, marks the moment when a person becomes a member of the Christian Church. Anyone can be baptised at their local church (child or adult) so long as they have not been baptized already.

If you are considering baptism for your child or yourself at one of our three churches, please first contact the Parish Administrator. If this is the first time you have requested a baptism you will be asked to take part in a brief preparatory course; this consists of two evening sessions together with other parents and led by a member of the clergy when the meaning of Baptism and its responsibilities are explored.

These sessions take place on Tuesdays at 8 pm in the Parish Centre.

Participants need to book into these sessions in advance. To book a place please make contact with the Administrator in the Church Office (01235 520144).
