Baptisms or christenings

Baptism or christening is the way in which people are welcomed into the life of the church. Babies are baptised on the basis of their parents faith and welcomed into the life of the church on the understanding that their parents will bring them up within the faith and life of the church. We love to pray for God's blessing on those coming seeking baptism and would love to have a conversation with you to discuss what baptism means and what is involved in the service if you would like God's blessing for your baby and for them to be welcomed into God's family, the church.

Baptisms are usually held during our 10:45 am service of Holy Communion on either the second or fourth Sunday of a month.

Unfortunately we are current unable to offer baptisms due to Covid-19 except in the case of an emergency.
