Baptisms at St Michael's

If you would like your child baptised at St Michael's we would be delighted to welcome you into the church family and discuss arrangements and preparations for this wonderful celebration. Baptisms usually take place during our 10.30 Family Communion Service on the First Sunday of the month. Baptisms should normally be conducted in the church in the parish in which you are resident. If you are not sure which is your parish church please click on the Find Churches link at the top of the Church Near You Home Page when you arrive at the site, type in your postcode and it will tell you which parish you are in. There are no set fees for a Service of Baptism although as part of the service there will be a money collection taken. In preparation for the baptism, you will be asked to choose at least 3 Godparents. Two should be the same gender as the child to be baptised and one should be of the other gender. Godparents must all be baptised themselves and should also be Confirmed. They should also be at least 16 years of age.

If you wish to discuss details further, please email [email protected] and you will be contacted by your preferred method of communication.
