Baptism

baptismBaptism and Holy Communion are the two signs of membership of the Anglican Church.  In order to bring a child for baptism parents and god-parents make serious promises, saying that they are Christians and that they intend to raise that child as a Christian in the context of regular attendance at their parish church.  With this in mind we would expect you to come to church a few times before enquiring about Baptism, just to make sure you are happy to commit to becoming regular attenders at our church.

Baptisms are carried out at our Family Services which are normally on the second Sunday of the month.

If you would like to enquire about having a child baptised please speak to a member of the clergy after any Sunday morning service.  As well as explaining the process for bringing a child to be baptised we will want to talk to you about making us your home church and about what it means to be Christian today.
