Baptisms are very special events - as those being baptised are given God's promises through the symbol of water. In baptism, children or adults are officially welcomed into the Family of God - the church!
If you live in our Parish or have a strong connection with St Bartholomew's, you are welcome to find out more about a baptism for yourself or your children. Please note: baptism services are usually held once a month (usually the third Sunday) at 3.00 pm and often have two families present. We take baptisms seriously (and joyfully!) and you may be asked to take part in Baptism Preparation. You will also need to come to our Sunday services. (At the Baptism you will make promises to keep coming!) Please use the 'Contact Us'page to get in touch and come to a 10.30 am Sunday Service.
If you would like to enquire about a baptism at St Bartholomew's Church then please come and visit us on Sunday morning at our morning worship (10.30 am). All enquiries about this will be dealt with following the service.
Below is a slideshow of a Christening held on Sunday 16th February 2020. Parents Tim and Claire Hordley presented their children Charles and Aubrey to be baptised. It was a lovely service and the children were wonderful.
