Baptism – sometimes called Christening

During a christening, your child will be baptised with water. It is the beginning of an amazing journey of faith for your child.

One of the first things you need to do is be in touch with our Rector – Rev. Sue Simpson who will be very pleased to hear from you. Her contact details are on this website and the church noticeboards.

You will need to choose godparents, friends or family who will be happy to make big promises on behalf of your child. They will be people you can trust who will be in touch with you for many years to come. Because of the very special role they have in supporting your child’s faith journey, they need to have been baptised themselves.
