Baptisms and Thanksgivings



We welcome all children into the Christian Family. The Church of England offers two alternative options: Baptism (sometimes referred to as Christening) or Thanksgiving (sometimes called Dedication). If you would like to find out more do get in touch with the minister, Paul Perkin.

Services of welcome of children take place within the main worship services on a Sunday morning at 10 am on an agreed date. If you wish to enquire about a welcome for your child, please contact us to arrange an initial visit. 

When you are considering who would make suitable Godparents, it is appropriate that the Godparents are themselves baptised. There is no fee payable for this service. 


Sometimes a decision to be baptised is made later in life, at any age. We warmly welcome enquiries from anyone wishing to find out more about baptism for adults. You will find you are not alone in wishing to explore the Christian faith, even for the first time, at any stage of life. Please contact us if you would like to know more.
