We’re delighted you’re thinking of Baptism for your child. Your child is precious to you and precious to God. Baptism (or ‘christening’) is a sacrament, a visible sign of God’s love for us; it marks a new start: a decision to follow Jesus Christ within the family of the church.
Inquiries about Baptisms can be made at the Parish Office on any Tuesday afternoon with our Parish Administrator or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you would like to inquire about Baptism for your child, please contact one of the clergy here.
During Term Time you can speak with someone on Tuesday Evenings, at St. Mary’s Church from 6:15 pm to 7.15 pm, during Rector’s Hour.
To get started:
Come to a Sunday church service
The best way to get used to being part of the church is to attend a Sunday service. The most important thing is to find a church and a congregation where you feel at home.
The main Sunday services can be found on the individual Church sites.
At each of these services there is a Sunday School, crèche and/or Children’s Corner with suitable books and toys, and baby-changing facilities.
After the service you can speak to one of the clergy to find out more about arranging for your child’s Baptism.
