Baptism Information

A new baby can mean all sorts of changes    – changes to our sleep patterns, changes to our finances, changes to our jobs and maybe changes to the way we look at the world.

At a time like this many parents want to think about getting a baby christened – the church calls it Baptism but it’s the same thing!

When a baby is baptised, parents and godparents make a commitment to bring the baby up as part of the Church family and learning what it means to be a friend of Jesus.

The Revd Alison Richardson would welcome the opportunity to discuss your child’s baptism. The first step is simple – come and see us!  Come along  on a Tuesday morning at 10.00 am. If this is not convenient please contact Alison by phone    (07873 596 164) or email at

If you are an adult and you want to explore what it might mean to be baptised then please get in touch.  

Currently baptisms are undertaken on the 1st Sunday of each month at 12.30 pm (after the morning service). However due to operational circumstances this may sometimes vary. We do recommend that prior to planning any celebration events that you have already confirmed the date of the baptism at the church.

We very much look forward to meeting you!
