Baptisms

 

The Church Font


If you live in our parish, or have strong links with St Andrew’s, and would like to have your child baptised, please ring the Parish Office on 01823 332531.

We usually have baptism services on a Sunday at 12 Noon.

There is no charge for this service and we look forward to meeting you and your child on this happy occasion. When you call us to arrange a date you will be invited to attend a preparation session at the church at which we discuss the service and its meaning for you and your child.

We also are happy to baptise adults as a part of their ongoing spiritual journey. Please contact the Vicar or the Parish Office if you would like this service.

Parish Office number: 01823 332531

More information on baptism may be found at the Church of England Christening website.

If you have a christening in church, there will be a small discount for booking the church hall for your reception.

Please contact the hall manager Lesley for details - see our Church Hall pages.
