We sometimes use the words 'baptism' and 'christening' interchangeably – a baby or young child is 'baptised' in a 'christening service'.
This service is a celebration of God’s love, a mark of belonging to God’s family and a commitment to going together on the journey of faith. We are delighted to invite babies and children from any of our parishes, or from further afield if there is a connection with one of our Team parishes, for a Christening service. Just get in touch with us if you would like to make arrangements for a christening.
For more details, see the dedicated Church of England Website for Christenings.
Where someone was not baptised/christened as a baby, but comes to Christian faith as an adult, baptism can be arranged, usually in the context of a Confirmation Service. The best place to start is to arrange to speak with the vicar.
