Baptism, sometimes referred to as christening, marks the start of a journey of faith and becoming a member of the worldwide Christian family.

We currently offer baptisms to people of all ages, usually on the first Sunday of each month.


In baptism you are coming to church to give thanks to God and to begin the journey of faith. Rev Sam will be happy to talk with you about baptism, its full meaning and support in going through with it. You should also think about choosing Godparents who can support you in your commitment. If you decide after discussion with Rev Sam that you wish to go ahead with baptism at St Chad’s, we commit ourselves to support and encourage your life in the family of the Church.

Please contact the church office (01743 365478) to discuss the baptism further.
