BAPTISMS

Our journey of faith begins with Baptism.

Both adults and children can be baptised, We are pleased to welcome those seeking Baptism, whether for themselves or their children. Baptism is a declaration of faith, a celebration of becoming part of God’s family and commitment to following Jesus Christ. We have many options to make the day especially memorable for your loved ones.


This website can also help you with the arrangements for your child’s Christening. 

Get in touch if you would like to discuss a baptism for you or for your child.

BAPTISM FAQ

IS THERE A CHARGE?

No! It’s free!
If you would like to give donations on the day then we are always grateful as this helps us to continue offering this ministry, but there is no pressure to do so.

WE’RE NOT MARRIED OR MY PARTNER ISN’T AROUND – CAN WE STILL HAVE OUR CHILD BAPTISED?

Yes, of course!

I AM NOT BAPTISED – CAN MY CHILD STILL BE BAPTISED?

Yes, of course!
All are welcome to be baptised. We encourage you to choose Godparents who have been baptised as the people to guide and encourage your child in faith. However, if there is someone special who you would like to have a role, then we will certainly involve them in the service and make sure that is celebrated.
