baptismWe are always delighted when parents bring their children for baptism. First you need to come to the get an application form from Church after a Sunday Service. You can then discuss dates and details with the clergy. Please contact the Reverend Revd David Guest davidguest.christchurch@gmail.com

Baptisms are usually conducted on the first Sunday of the month at 11.30 am .  The candidate comes to a be enrolled at a Baptism service previous to  the Baptism. There is then a time  when the parents attend a preparation evening a few weeks before the baptism. This is an opportunity to think about the meaning of Baptism, the promises that will be made on the child’s behalf, and what this will mean for the child’s upbringing, as well as to choose the hymns and prayers used at the service.

There is no charge for a Baptism. Only those resident in the parish or regular worshippers may apply for baptism here.
There is some helpful information about Baptism on the Church of England Website.
