In the Church of England, our tradition is to baptise babies and young children to
welcome them into the family of the church as a first step in their preparation to
become an active part of the Church. It’s also equally valid for older children and
adults who want to formally show how important their Christian faith has become to
It’s also a wonderful opportunity for families and friends to celebrate, in the setting
of a church, the gift of a new life, with all the hope and joy that a child can bring.
We aim to make baptisms a special occasion that friends and families, and particularly
other children, will remember with warmth and affection for many years. It’s also
our opportunity to share with you something of the love and care that we’ve experienced
within the St. Peter’s church family.
If you’d like to talk about the possibility of baptism for yourself or your children,
please call the Church Office on 01252 331161 (Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays
from 9:30 to 11:30 am) and make an appointment to come along on a Wednesday evening
for a chat to Linda Hill (pictured).
