Church of England Diocese of Newcastle The Holy Spirit Denton


Baptism is free for everyone.  It is the start of your life long journey in faith.  You will be welcomed into Gods Church at your Baptism. His love for us  is all encompassing.  

Any child or adult who lives within the parish boundaries or has strong links with the Parish can be baptised at Holy Spirit.  If you live outside the parish boundary you can still be baptised at Holy Spirit but written permission will be needed from your parish Vicar. 

All Godparents must be baptised.

Baptisms usually take place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month. The baptism can be part of the 9.30 am Eucharistic service or at 11.00 am.  Other times are by arrangement with the Vicar or appointed officer.

Baptism preparation will be given to parents of babies. If the child is of school age they will be actively involved in their own preparation also adults wishing to be baptised will attend for preparation.  Godparents are also encouraged to attend the baptism preparation.
