Baptism or Thanksgiving

So you're thinking about baptism? That is great news!  Here at St. Mark's we love baptisms.  Joining the church family is hugely important for the spiritual and personal growth of an adult or child.

There may be a limit on the number of guests whom you can invite in order to comply with the current Covid-19 restrictions.


If you are an adult considering baptism then please speak to the Vicar about how to go forward. 

It is very important that parents and Godparents are fully informed about the promises they will make and the journey on which they are embarking.  Please note, Godparents must themselves have been baptised in a Christian church. 

We will need details of the Christian names for the child and details of the parents and Godparents. Please collect a Baptism Form from the information desk at the back of church - the church is usually open for half an hour before and after each service - and give it to one of the church staff or deliver it to the Vicarage, 6 Windy Hill Lane. Once this is done you can move forward and book a date.

There are no fees associated with a baptism but the church is always pleased to receive donations to help it to further its work and its mission.

Please speak to the Vicar to arrange a date.
