Baptisms and Weddings

Adult Baptism

Sometimes, seeing someone else baptized, deciding to have your own child baptized or being asked to be a godparent, can make you to think about your own journey of faith. If you were not baptized as a young child, you may be deciding now as an adult or teenager to make this commitment.

Whatever led you to this point, baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives.

Child Baptism

Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church. During the christening service your child will be baptized and with the support of the church, you and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith.

If you're interested in being baptized, or would like your child to be baptized at Shelland, please contact:
