Baptisms – Welcome to the family

Children and young people

We love to baptise babies, children and adults (see below for adult baptism) – 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 come to St Barnabas for a couple of months so that you can get to know us a bit and we can get to know you!

Please contact either the of Revd Ed Dines for more information.

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.
