In baptism (sometimes called ‘Christening’), 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. Because the Church believes that God's love is available to all, so anyone can have their child baptised regardless of their background.


Your parish priest can talk you through the options: for instance you might prefer to have a Thanksgiving / naming service first and then consider baptism when you have had time to ponder and pray things through.


You can discuss your baptism requirements by contacting Reverend Vivienne Hatton on 01642 958686

(appointment not necessary)


We're delighted you're thinking of baptism for your child. Your child is precious to you and precious to God. At baptism you promise to raise your child to know God loves them, and to help them to follow Jesus as a member of the Church.
