Thinking about a Baptism or Christening?

Babies & younger children.
After the birth of a baby or in the years that follow many parents choose to have their child baptised and we are always pleased to hear from those who would like this for their child
Choosing to have your child baptised is a big decision and we will help you to understand the significance of the decision that you will make and what it means to be baptised.
If you would like to explore the possibility of a baptism for your child, then the first step is to complete the webform you will find below. This will go directly to our team who will get in touch about the next steps. One of the steps that follow will be a visit with our vicar (who is really nice!) who will explore with you what baptism means for the church, for you and your child.
Baptisms usually take place on Sundays in the 10.30 am service but can, if there is a particular difficulty with a Sunday morning, be arranged as a separate service. We encourage you to come along and meet us at church for a service or two prior to the special day so that we can get to know you and you can get to know us!
To enquire further about a baptism for your child:

Older children & adults.
Once a child reaches the age of about 10 or 11 the church considers them mature enough to make the decision to be baptised on their own. Depending upon the needs of you and your family there are options: baptism in the parish church may still be the right option, but there is also then the option of a combined baptism and confirmation service with the Bishop.
If you are already baptised and wish to explore confirmation or otherwise explore what it means to be a Christian then the best option is to come along on a Sunday and meet both us and our vicar, who will be delighted to get to know you and help you work out the best choice for you.
