Welcome to our information about baptism (also known as Christening – it’s the same thing!)

We’re particularly excited if you’re here because you are considering a celebration service for your child. Children and families are important to us at St. John’s Church we want you to be included and feel welcome. Children are a wonderful gift from God and baptism is a great way to celebrate and give thanks for them.

Baptism isn’t just for children or babies – anyone can get baptised if they haven’t already done so. Please see information below specifically about Older Children and Adult Baptism. You can also request a service where both adults and children from the same family or friendship group are baptised together.
