Baptism is also known as Christening. Everyone is welcome to have their child baptised, or be baptised themselves, in their parish church.

In bringing their child for baptism parents make a decision to start their child on a lifelong journey of faith. Parents and godparents thank God for the gift of new life and promise to help and support the child in their growth in faith. The church also promises to welcome the newly baptised and to pray for them.

We also welcome adults who want to be baptised. Baptisms usually take place during one of our 10am Sunday services. If you would like to consider baptism for yourself or for your child, come to one of our services and speak to one of the clergy team. We will then meet with you to help you to prepare for this special celebration.

If you have any questions, do get in touch. You can also find out more about baptism on the Church of England’s website.
