Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church. During the Christening service your baby will be baptized. There are around 10,000 babies and children baptized in the Church of England every month. We also welcome adults who want to be baptized.
Your child is precious to you and precious to God. At Baptism you make a decision to start your child on a journey of faith. The church and the godparents support the family and the child in this decision.
Baptism can be included as a part of our regular worship services or may often take place separately afterwards on a Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you, your children and your family and friends to St. Paul's for this special time.
The good news is that a Baptismal service is free. (Occasionally parents need a certified copy of the entry in the register. In 2017 this will cost £13).
