Baptism

Print

Babies change life! They bring great joy and often a fair bit of tiredness. It’s good to thank God for the gift of a new life and we all need support in bringing up our children as Christians.  In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptism young children; this is sometimes known, outside the church, as christening.

Baptism is a 'sacrament' (holy ritual to symbolise grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptized in the river Jordan.

We will be delighted to help you prepare for your child’s baptism (also known as “Christening”). These days we also see more adults asking to be baptised as a big step in their own journey of faith. There is no financial cost for baptism.

Baptisms normally take place during a Sunday morning service.

Please contact Lynne Marshall, one of our pastoral team, and she will take time to get to know you and to help you prepare for this important occasion.  She can be contacted by email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
