We welcome all who wish to be baptised – or christened – the words mean the same.
Baptisms take place either in one of the main Sunday services or, if you would prefer a more personal service, a service any other day, including Sunday afternoon. It is a celebration for family and friends as we welcome the person being baptised into God’s family.
If it is a child being baptised, I will come and meet you in your home to talk about the service, God Parents and the special meaning baptism has in the Christian community. It is a chance to find out more and ask your questions about this special service.
The service is free. If you have the more personal service and would like hymns, there is a fee for the organist.
It is not just babies and children who are baptised, adults are too! It is a joy when someone older wishes to make this commitment for themselves. This is likely to take place in the main Sunday service in one of our churches. Again I will come and meet you in your home to chat about what you are doing and the service.
"Baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives, the first step in response to God’s love".
If you would like to be baptised, or have a child you would like to be baptised, please contact Revd Margaret (details below)
