Baptisms (Christenings)

Jesus commanded his followers to make disciples, and to baptise them. Baptisms - sometimes called Christenings - are carried out at both St Thomas and St Lawrence, and through these services we welcome families into the family of the Church.

It is important to us that families understand what is involved in having a child baptised. To this end, we expect parents and ideally their godparents, to attend a preparation session, usually held on the evening of the 3rd Monday of the month.

We also expect you to attend the main Sunday worship service in either church, to meet with the clergy or members of the baptism team, before proceeding with a service.

For further details about having a baptism for you or your family, please contact Rev Canon Gordon McGuinness (0772 505 3180  or email us)
