When will my child be baptised?

St Mary’s, St Peter’s and St Martin’s welcome families who bring their children for baptism and we will try to make your service as special as possible.

However this is a very busy parish and whilst we will try to accommodate your needs we do have limits on the times available for baptism services.


We have lots of baptism requests - particularly at St Mary's, church which, can get booked up very quickly. 

We currently have booking space for 2016 baptisms at all three churches.

Please email our administrator - make sure you tell us:

  • your name and contact details;
  • your address;
  • which church you wish to use;
  • your connection to that church if you do not live in our parish;
  • some idea of when you would like the baptism to take place.

Our baptism service is usually a simple, said service for which there is no parochial fee charged. 

Should you want to have music (hymns, choir, organ, piano etc.) this may be possible but we would require a minimum of 4 weeks' notice and our local parochial fees will be charged.  Click here for details.
