Sadly, owing to the restrictions to prevent the spread of Coronavirus Covid-19, there can be no baptisms / christenings in church buildings until further notice.

Emergency baptisms can take place in a hospital or at home, though subject to strict hygiene precautions and physical distancing as far as this is possible.

We welcome families who would like to have their children christened or baptised (it’s the same thing) here. A Baptism Service enables you to express your Christian faith in God as you take on the task of parenthood. The water is a picture of two invisible free gifts from God to all who believe: his forgiveness and his promise of eternal life.

Some families ask for a Thanksgiving Service after the birth of their baby instead, if they feel they are not yet ready to make the promises in the Baptism Service about Christian faith.

We are also glad to help adults who are thinking about getting baptised or confirmed.

Please contact either Sarah Evans or the vicar for more information.
