Baptism

We are delighted to baptise children or anyone who has never been baptised before. Baptism (also known as Christening) is a beautiful gift from God – a sign of new birth, of complete forgiveness and acceptance, of the hope of eternal life and of belonging to a loving community.

To have a baptism in St Cuthbert’s, you either need to live in the parish (see image below) or have a connection with the church. Baptisms usually take place at 3pm on the second and forth Sunday of the month.

Parish Boundary

If you are thinking about baptism, we would encourage you to come along on a Sunday to get a feel for the church community. We expect you to attend a baptism preparation group where the parents and Godparents will learn about baptism and the practical arrangements for the service. These are usually on the first Monday of the month from 6pm – 7pm in St Cuthbert’s.

Enquiries regarding baptisms can be made at St. Cuthbert’s between 6pm and 6.45pm every Monday, except bank holidays. If you have any further questions, please fill out the following form.
