Arranging the baptism of your child

Baptisms are normally done within the context of one of the Sunday worship services. This is because baptism is a new birth into the family of God, so the family of God is present to welcome the newest member of the family.

The date and time of the Baptism is settled with a member of the clergy staff. Please contact the vicar, Lawrence Kimberley (981 7384) in the first instance. This should be done before any other arrangements in connection with the baptism are made.

Godparents should be baptised members of the Christian Church, people who practice their faith in their lives and take an active role in the life of the church. This will make the promises they make in the Baptismal service more meaningful.

No fee is charged for Baptism but if you wish to make a donation to the parish as a thank offering to God, you are welcome to do so.
