In Baptism, parents thank God for his gift of life, make a decision to start the child on the journey of faith and ask for the Church’s support. In the Church of England it is common to baptise young children (this is sometimes known as “christening") but baptism can take place at any age, including as an adult. “Confirmation” is the point at which those baptised as children make their baptismal promises for themselves.
A Baptism usually takes place as part of a main Sunday service, when the congregation will be present to welcome the person baptised. We are very willing to meet with you and talk about the service and the meaning of baptism. There's a lot of useful info here.
If you would like book a date for a baptism, here's what to do:
1. Contact the Rector and introduce yourselves. Tell us what date you'd like ideally.
2. Click here to complete a form on-line* (this is sent automatically).
3. Wait to hear from our baptism co-ordinator who will let you know if that date is OK.
Please do NOT make further plans until you have heard from us!
