We are delighted that you are considering having a Baptism or Thanksgiving service at St. John's. A Baptism is the traditional service in which water is poured over the child's head. In this service, the parents and godparents promise to bring up the child in the Christian faith. A Service of Thanksgiving is also offered for those who are not ready to have their child baptised, but would like to thank God for their birth or adoption.
We want to offer you a warm welcome and do all we can to make the occasion enjoyable and meaningful for your family.
We have created a leaflet to answer as many questions as possible. This will soon appear on this page but until then please contact the parish office to see the leaflet.
Below you will find photographs of recent baptisms and a baptism request form. Please fill in this form, or contact the parish office, if you would like to arrange a Baptism.
