Baptisms

We ask that all those seeking their children to be baptised/christened at St John the Baptist to start attending any of our Sunday services. We ask you to attend at least twice before booking a baptism. We do hope you will come as often as possible before the baptism and also consider attending at least once a month afterwards. You will also need to go through a baptism preparation course which lasts an hour. Adults wishing to be baptised must attend church regularly and also attend a seeker course (Christians basics Course/Alpha or Start Courses).
If you live in another parish you must seek the permission and goodwill of your parish priest. As they have pastoral responsibility for you, you need to explain your reasons to them and to us as to why you are intending to ask for baptism at St John’s.
