We're delighted you're thinking of baptism for your child. Your child is precious to you and precious to God.

In baptism, you as parents are: thanking God for the gift of life, deciding to start your child on the journey of faith, asking for the Church's support, and encouraging them in becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family. Baptism is a 'sacrament': a visible sign of God's love.

Teenagers and adults may also be baptised (you’re never too old!) and sometimes this is included within a celebration of Confirmation by the Bishop.

Baptisms (Christenings) are generally held at 12noon on a Sunday at St Botolph’s and at St Mark’s.


In the first instance please contact -

Fr Cyril Showers    01474 535814 or Marion Fielder-White    01474 823381

who will arrange to visit you and talk to you about the Baptism Service, booking a date and completing the Baptism application form.
