Church of England Diocese of Leeds Ossett-cum-Gawthorpe

Baptisms / Christenings / Confirmation

The church holds regular services of baptism/christening - occasionally within 10am services for families involved with the church directly, but at 12pm on the first Sunday of the month for those living within the parish of Ossett and Gawthorpe. Please contact the church office (01924 263497) for more details. Baptism preparation sessions are held quarterly (usually 7pm on a Monday evening), with baptisms followed by a welcome (where certificates and book gifts are distributed) at our monthly Family Service. At the 12pm baptism services it is normal for 3-4 families to have their children baptised. Please also check with the office about baptism of older children and adults, and confirmation, where as babies or younger children who have previously been baptised, young people and adults can make the decision to affirm this for themselves.
