As baptism is a sacrament, involving solemn promises made to God, people need to be willing to commit to baptism preparation. Baptism preparation will usually take place about a month beforehand.
I live outside the parish?
If someone outside of the parish wishes to be baptised or have their child baptised in this Parish, they will need to:Get written permission from their local parish priest
ANDAttend St Anne’s or Holy Trinity worship regularly enough to be eligible for the electoral roll (ie at least once a month for minimum 6 months.) This includes services other than the main morning Sunday service eg Muddy Church, Zoom, Alfresco worship etc.
C) Regularly attend Church Tots or other church-run family activities
