Baptism or Christening

Both are the same!  Baptism is the point at which a baby, child or adult becomes a member of the church.  If it is an adult who is being baptised they will make a statement of faith and of commitment to worshipping in the church.  In the case of a baby or child, this will be done on their behalf by their parents & godparents.

In the case of a baby or child you will be sent a booklet explaining the different services available and then the Associate Priest, Pauline Hart will come and speak with you about the service and answer any questions you might have.

If you are interested in baptism or would like to find out more, then please contact Andrew Fordyce, our Rector, on 01206 920848 or e-mail below.
