The Parish Church of St Andrew

Baptisms

One of the joys of life is having a child of your own. Part of the life of our church is to share in that joy.

People who want to have their child baptised (Baptism means to dip) and christened (the giving of a Christian name) can do.

If you live near our church you are entitled to this. When you live in another Parish you still can have your child baptised but we have to seek permission from your local church.

You can have your child baptised within our service at 11.00 am (1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays) or after the service at 12.30 pm. Please contact us to check on dates.

Traditionally there are three godparents: two the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex but to have one godmother and one godfather is sufficient. Parents may be godparents to their own children provided that the child has at least one other godparent. If you want you may have more than three godparents.

There is no cost for a baptism.
