clara_baptism_croppedWe’re delighted that you’re considering having your child baptised (christened) here. The first step is to fill out the Baptism Form. If you’d like to have several children baptised together, please fill out a form for each one.

Complete a Baptism Form
Once you’ve completed the form, please return it to the Parish Office by email, by post or by hand.

Meeting with our Associate Priest.
After we’ve received your completed Baptism Form, we’ll contact you to arrange an appointment for you and your child to meet with our Associate Priest and discuss the baptism. At this meeting the date for the baptism will be confirmed.

We always try to work with families to find a date that suits them. Our regular time for baptisms  is 12.15pm on the second and fourth Sunday of each month, with the exception of Lent when, as a rule, no baptisms take place.   Baptisms may also take place, by special arrangement, as part of our main service of Holy Communion, which is held at 10.30am every Sunday.

Ours is a particularly popular church for baptisms so it can be quite some time from an initial enquiry to the next available baptism date. Some families are happy to share the day with others, which offers more flexibility with dates, but this is entirely optional.

Baptising Adults
We also baptise older children and adults, with the application process being the same as it is for infants.

The Cost of Baptisms
The church makes no charge for Baptisms but donations are welcome.

Room Hire
The Blenkin Room, a lovely light space upstairs in our new Centre, is available for hire and is popular for Baptism celebrations. See our Venue Hire page for more information.
