Baptisms

Congratulations! If you are reading this page, it probably means that you have recently become a parent. We are delighted for you; and hope that all goes well with you and your new family.


Baptism is about welcoming your baby, not only as the newest member of your family but also into the family of the Church. Of course, the difficulties of arranging such things as well as coping with all the changes that a baby brings can mean that by the time you get round to arranging it, your baby might not be quite so new! That doesn’t matter: God welcomes us at any age.


But if you do want to bring your baby for baptism, we’d be pleased to help. Please contact the rector using the ‘Contact Us’ form, and he will arrange to visit you, go through the Baptism service with you and arrange for when the service will take place. Baptisms are normally part of a main Sunday service, in your local Parish Church; but there are sometimes reasons for varying this practice, which you would want to discuss with the rector.

Yes, but before we make contact, how much does it cost?

Baptism is a sign of God’s love, and we don’t charge a fee to proclaim this! Of course, donations to Church Funds are always welcome, but certainly not compulsory.
