Things people want to know usually include ...
How much does it cost?
The church is pleased to welcome new members into its family and we do not charge any fee. There is a collection during the service when you have an opportunity to contribute to the work of the church if you would like to do so.
How many Godparents?
It is usual to have three godparents, two of the same sex as the person being baptized and one of the opposite sex. It is acceptable, however, to have one of each sex.
Parents can be godparents to their own child provided that there is at least one other person.
Do godparents have to be baptized and confirmed?
The church law requires that at least one of the godparents should be baptized. You do not have to be confirmed.
How old do you have to be to be baptized?
There is no lower or upper age limit for baptism. We are pleased to welcome anyone who is not baptized to consider this. If you would like to discuss the matter further the Vicar will be pleased to meet with you and answer any other questions you may have either about the baptism of a baby or child or for yourself. It is lovely when people think about deepening their own faith and joining with our church family.
