Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals

We are here to serve your needs, even if you are not a regular church attender. We will encourage you to take the Christian faith seriously, but we shall accept you as you are.


God's gift of life is an amazing miracle.  Baptism is the way to live that life with God in its fullness by following Jesus Christ as members of his Church.

People can be baptised at any age.  It is the first of the three steps of Christian initiation, leading to the first Holy Communion, and the Sacrament of Confirmation.

There will be some preparation for this process of initiation, and it is always a lovely time of growth and new discovery.  For parents who would like their children baptised, we welcome you 'as you are'.  Together let's prepare for a wonderful celebration of God's love - who is the very source of all that love you have for your child and family.
