baptism of child

We welcome adults or children for baptism (if you aren’t sure if you qualify, just ask!).

During the christening your child will be baptized. It’s the first step of an amazing journey with God, which for a child includes their parents, godparents, friends, and family as well as the church community.

You don’t have to have been christened yourself, and you don’t have to have been a regular churchgoer. It is free, and can take place either in the 10.00am Sunday service or by arrangement at another time, often at 12.30pm on a Sunday.  For more information look at:
