Baptisms during Covid restrictions in the3churches of Croston, Bretherton & Mawdesley w Bispham

As the foundation of Christian life, baptism is a time of joy and celebration for all involved and whilst it may be some time before this celebration can be enjoyed as before.
We have not conducted any Baptisms in our three churches since the first lockdown came into force in March 2020, but now the government is easing the restrictions we will begin to take bookings for baptisms once again.
As the overwhelming majority of our Baptisms occur outside normal Parish Worship we will follow the government guidance for weddings which are similar in their nature as gatherings of family and friends come together to celebrate a significant life event.
The Government restrictions change with the different steps out of lockdown and are summarised as follows:
Step 2: 15 people attending, from the 12th April
Step 3: 30 people attending, estimated for 17th May at the earliest
Step 4: no limit on people attending, estimated for 21st June at the earliest
I must stress that these are indicative dates and are dependent on confirmation from government at each stage.
The limits do not include those classed “workers”, such as the Priest or others assisting on behalf of the church.
We will be following the government and Church of England guidance to ensure that conduct all our services in as safe a manner as possible, these are also subject to change as the government restrictions change.
You will appreciate that there will be a large number of baptism requests coming to us so dates will need to negotiated due to the number of requests we are likely to receive and the availability of clergy to conduct the baptisms.
If you would like to book a date can you please email the Rector with the following details so that we can begin to plan a schedule and agree dates with you.
Baptisms usually take place at 12:30 pm although they can also take place within a regular Sunday Holy Communion service if preferred.

If you want to arrange a Baptism please contact the rector.

Please come and look around our lovely grade 2 listed church you will be made most welcome with guides if you would like to learn a bit more about the history of the building or just take a booklet on the church and wander around at your own pace.
There is a children's quiz to keep them interested as they walk around or a play area if they prefer.
There are quiet areas for prayer or reflection both inside the church and outside if you prefer.
The church is wheelchair accessible and there is a disabled toilet.
After looking around the church take time to wander around Bishop Chester's wood with playground equipment and the Croft Field which is dog friendly, before enjoying a wander around the lovely ancient village of Croston.
