Baptisms (Christenings)

To arrange a Baptism, please contact our Parish Administrator, Katharin Page,

Baptisms for children at St Mary’s are especially welcome at the Parish Communion on the fourth Sunday of any month. A welcome for you is then arranged for the first Sunday Family Communion and this can be 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 Julie Norris

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

You may wish to celebrate the baptism with a party or gathering after the service in the Community Room. To do this please contact Mary Lester to discuss your ideas.

The Church of England publishes advice about Baptism on its national website. www.churchof Look up ‘Christening FAQs’
