Baptisms – Welcome to the family


Children and young people

We love to baptise babies and children – to welcome them into the church family.  We offer thanksgiving services for families who want to thank God for the gift of a child.

Families are asked to aim to commit to at least six months of church life with us if they’re taking this step.

There is also lots more handy information about child baptism on this Church of England website

We also have put together this a Baptism or Thanksgiving guide about these services as St Barnabas.


Adult baptism and Confirmation


We also hold regular adult baptism and confirmation services throughout the year to welcome you into the church family.
