What is Baptism?


This is a service which marks the beginning of a childs journey with

God - a journey which continues for the rest of their lives.  It's a first step in response to God's love. The wider community of the family and friends and the local church welcome the new Christian, promising support and prayer for the future,


Although the Church always calls this service Baptism, its also known as Christening, as its here that a child is given their Christian names and begins their Christian life.


When can my child be baptised?


Baptisms of infants and children take place on the 2nd Sunday of the month:
