Arranging a Baptism
Talk to a minister
The first step is to talk to a minister. You can do this by either catching up with one of our ministry team after any of our Sunday services, or by contacting the church office to make an appointment.
Preparation for Baptism
Prior to a baptism being performed, you will meet with a member of our ministry team to discuss the requirements for baptism. Most commonly, he or she will meet you at your home and together you will watch a short 30 minute DVD that explains the Christian faith. This is a very informal meeting and is the perfect opportunity for you to discuss any questions you may have about baptism or Christianity.
During this meeting you will discuss the type of service you would like, i.e. if you would rather a baptism or thanksgiving service for your children; or for adult baptisms, where you would like to be baptised and the format of the baptism service. For those undertaking an adult baptism outside of a church service, a time will be made within a church service shortly afterwards to formally welcome them as a part of the church community.
Arranging a Date
The Vicar's PA will contact you regarding a mutually suitable date for the baptism or thanksgiving service to take place.
