Christenings & Baptisms

A Christening is a very special event for parents, families, godparents and friends and we would love to help you to plan the event. 

If you would like to arrange a Christening at St Martin's, please email Rev Becky Waring ([email protected]).

To help you know more about what happens during the service and for help planning, we have provided to links the Church of England website which has lots of information. 

Anyone can get in touch with a church to find about having their child christened. During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.
