A baptism/christening is always an exciting event at St. John's. These are often for babies or children but we also believe that a person of any age can be baptised so please ask if this is your hope.

The sprinkling of water from a font is the norm for children, but we do believe that baptism by full immersion for adults is a wonderful way of publicly celebrating a trust in Jesus as Saviour and Lord.

Things to consider:

If you live outside the parish of St. John's, you need to ask for written permission from your local Church of England Church for your baptism to take place here. We would also ask you to attend church regularly so you can get to know us a little, and begin this journey of faith.

We begin the booking process after you have been to church and nearer the time our Vicar will come to visit you and the Godparents (if bringing a child for baptism), to talk through the baptism.
