Baptism Services

If you have recently become parents, we offer you our warmest congratulations! It is good that so many parents still think of Baptism as an important and natural part of bringing new life into the world.

At St John the Evangelist we see Baptism, very much as the beginning of a journey, and this the first sacrament – the beginning of our life as Christians.

Baptism is usually administered after the 10.00am family service on the second Sunday of the month. The Baptism starting at  12.15pm.

Adults who wish to be baptised, if they have not been baptised as children, may also contact us to make these promises and profess their faith.

There is no charge for baptism, however there is a collection during the service as the cost of keeping St John’s open is very substantial at around £2000 per week. Anything that you and your guests might be able to give would be very gratefully received.

If you would like to arrange for a Baptism at St Johns please complete the application form below and you will be contacted by the parish administrator.
