A child is a precious gift and we’d love to celebrate with you. In baptism, your child becomes part of the church family, as well as your own. Being a parent isn’t always easy and we’d love to help and encourage you – not just for the christening day itself but as your child grows and as we make a journey of faith together.

We're always glad to meet with families. Just fill in the online baptism enquiry form and we'll contact you to see how we can help, usually within a couple of days. If you live outside the Parish of Stoke & Fenton you can find your local church and parish here.

Christening marks the start of a child's amazing journey ahead through life. You can find out more here including a step by step guide to what takes place. Don’t forget, we’re also ready to baptize adults if you’ve not been baptised before.


What about godparents?
Godparents can have a really important role in your child's life - not just at the christening but in years to come. The Church of England offers really helpful advice about godparents here.
