Baptisms

To arrange a Baptism, please contact our Parish Administrator.

Baptisms for children at St Mary’s are especially welcome at the Parish Communion on the fourth Sunday of the month. A welcome is then arranged for the first Sunday Family Communion and this is a good chance to meet with other families. Private ceremonies in church are also possible, by arrangement.

Adults considering Baptism are equally welcome. The first step is to speak with to Simon Talbott.

There are no set fees for a Baptism. Donations are always welcome but are by no means obligatory.

A lot of baptismal families also hire The Community Room for a party or gathering after the service so please contact Mary Lester to discuss your ideas.

The Church of England publishes some advice about Baptism on its national website.
