If you have recently had a new baby CONGRATULATIONS! We would love to celebrate with you. A service of baptism or a christening (they mean the same thing) is the start of an amazing journey of faith as well as a special day for family and friends.
If you would like to talk about having your child baptised then please do get in touch. You can have your child christened whether or not you have been christened yourself and whether or not you are a regular church goer. There is also no charge for a service of baptism.
Once you have contacted us, you will meet the minister to talk through the service and any questions you may have. There will also be an opportunity to find out what goes on at St Mary’s and how the church can continue to support your family after the baptism service is over.
We also run a short course for babies and their carers called Starting Rite. During the 5 sessions you will use playful interaction to think about ways in which you can help your child understand more about God and also understand more about baptism.
Whatever questions you have we would love to hear from you. Please contact us on:
