Baptisms & Thanksgivings

The church offers Infant Baptism to those parents that would like to ask for God's help in the bringing up of their children and to make commitments to bring the child up in the Christian faith by example and by regular meeting together with God's people, the Church.

We also offer Adult Baptism to those who have not been baptised as a child and seek to make this commitment for themselves.

The first step would be to start joining us at one of our Sunday Morning services details here.   

Once you have been attending regularly for three months (at least a couple of times a month) the Rector would then meet with you to talk through what is involved, the promises that parents make in the service, and complete any paper work.  If you would like to discuss this further please feel free to email our Rector Nick Rowan leaving your telephone number and he can follow up with you.

There is an alternative of a Thanksgiving Service for the birth of a child.
