Church of England Diocese of Liverpool St. Margaret and All Hallows Orford

Christenings (Baptism)

Christenings are an important part of our ministry to the community and it's wonderful to be able to welcome people to Church for baptism. Baptisms take place on the first and third Sunday of the month (excluding August) at approximately 11.15 am.

We baptize all those who live within the parish boundaries (if you're not sure if we're your parish Church, type in your postcode on the home page of 'A Church near you' - which will tell you which parish you're resident in). 

If you don't live within the parish boundaries, then baptism still may be possible, but you will need written permission from the Vicar of the parish where you are resident and permission from the Vicar of St Margaret's.   

It is not possible to arrange Baptisms over the telephone, by e-mail, or via Facebook, so please do call at the church to make the necessary arrangements, where we will try to put you at your ease and make the whole process as enjoyable as possible. The best time to visit us to make arrangements is at the Parish Office, which is held in the Beamont Room (at the back of Church) between 7.30pm - 8.00pm on the first Thursday evening in the month as follows:


1 October

5 November

3 December


7 January

4 February
