Baptism, Confirmation, Marriage & Funerals
If you are interested in Baptism for your child or for yourself please contact our Baptism Team (via the Church Office on 01635 41249 or e-mail) who will meet up with you to discuss the arrangements and explain the baptism service.
Baptisms take place either within the main Sunday service at 9.30am or are held separately at 11.30am on the fourth Sunday of each month.
Please rememnber that baptism is the beginning of a journey of faith rather than an end in itself. In baptism we welcome into the family of faith those who are being baptised. We’d dearly love to see you making this special service a starting point into a deepening faith and to bringing up your children within the life of the church.
Most people when they are baptised are too young to understand the promises made by their parents and godparents for them.
In confirmation young people and adults ‘confirm’, take for themselves, set a seal upon, the promises made earlier in baptism. We offer confirmation classes for both young people and adults to help them understand their faith and the choice they are taking to live as followers of Jesus Christ. Confirmations are always conducted by a Bishop.
If you would like more details about Confirmation please contact the vicar (Tel. 01635 524994).
