Do you want to get baptised or baptise your child ?

A new baby is a special joy to its parents and a decision to baptise the baby is a way to give thanks to God for the safe delivery of a new child and to enlist God's help in protecting it. At a baptism the parents and godparents make commitments before God that they will help to bring up the child in the image of God and follow the Christian way of life. More information on baptism in the Church of England can be found on the life events website:

So although a baptism ceremony is a special occasion for the family, and especially for the parents, it is also an acknowledgement before God of the responsibilities that those close to the child will assume in the child's early life, and also before the church family in which the child will be brought up.


All parents and carers considering baptism for their children are invited to attend  baptism preparation with Reverend Tracey our Rector and it is so important that the chosen God parents also understand what an important role they will play - we welcome baptism in our Benefice and would love to support you as you make this decision so please make contact with the Benefice Office 01460 240377 or email
