Christenings and baptisms

St John's welcomes enquiries about christenings (baptisms) of children and adults.


Anyone who lives in the parish is entitled to have their child baptised at St John's. Baptisms usually take place during the 10.00 am Sunday service, often on the second Sunday of the month. Under special circumstances a baptism may take place on a Sunday afternoon.


As a church we take seriously the commitment we make during the service to welcome the newly baptised – whether they are babies, older children or adults. So we look to support and encourage them on their journey of faith, particularly in the various activities we run for children of all ages (Toddlers,  Children's Church, choir). 


If you would like to discuss a baptismal service, please contact Lyn Harrison in the Parish Office (telephone: 01223 241316; email:


The church and its garden are a lovely place for post-baptismal photographs. Our church has some car parking space.
