What is the right age for baptism?
There is no ‘right’ age to be baptised. Child or adult, God
loves each one of us and welcomes us into the Church at any age.
If you decide to be baptised as a teenager or adult, you may
also choose to be confirmed. Talk to the vicar or any member
of our ministry team for more
information and guidance.
What does it cost?
The Baptism service is free.
What is a Thanksgiving Service?
We like to call this a Service of Thanksgiving for the Gift of a
Child. In this service, you thank God for the gift of your child
and the child is blessed. You do not make the same promises
as in the Baptism service.
If you choose to have a Thanksgiving, you may also have a
Baptism service for your child at a later date.
What do I do now?
To discuss in more detail your requirements simply make an
appointment with our vicar by telephoning the Parish Office on
020 8309 0866 or call direct on 020 8300 0383 or e-mail.
