We welcome applications for Baptisms at Holy Cross, St Sampson's, St John's or All Saints. It is a lengthy process to arrange a baptism, so please start early as we cannot take specific date requests:
  1. Please read our Baptism Information (pdf) to find out about the commitments parents and godparents must make when a child is baptised into the Church of England.
  2. Visit this website to check if you live within one of our parishes: A Church Near You

    If you live within our parish boundaries, or have a close personal connection with the church or the parishes, you may complete and submit the Baptism application form below now. The application form gives you an opportunity to give us details of your close connection. 

    If you live outside our parish boundaries you must contact the vicar of your local church by email and forward their email response giving their permission for us to baptise your child. Then please complete and submit the Baptism application form below.

  3. Once we have received your application (and permission from your local vicar if you are out of area) Photo of Baptismwe will invite you to meet with us at at least two Sunday morning services so you can get to know us and the church family and we can get to know you. You will then need to join us for two sessions (possibly with other families whose children are being baptised) to prepare you for the baptism service.
