How wonderful – you’re thinking about Baptism (or Christening if you prefer) for you or your child! This means that you’re prepared to acknowledge that God really loves you and you want to follow the teachings of Jesus to learn more about this ‘love’ and how it can be shared with our neighbours.
Anyone can be baptised – but just note that your supporters (Godparents) will need to have been baptised before (the clue is in the name really – GOD-parent).
We do have enquiry evenings in the church hall on Tuesday evenings for parents to think about baptism or thanksgivings and to book dates. These start at 7.30pm. Just contact our Parish Administrator to find out what’s involved and the times when we can do this and one of our Team will come along for a brief visit.
The dates for our enquiry evenings for 2017 (which are held in our Church Hall, 14 Kidderminister Rd) are
- January 17th
- March 14th
- May 9th
- July 18th
- September 12th
- November 14th
And we as a church want you to grow and share in that love, so you can share it with others! And don't forget it’s FREE – because God’s love is FREE!
A Note about Baptisms and St. John's School
The Admission policy at St. John's school does not require your child to be baptised, but it does require a family to be regular attenders (a minimum of once a month) at a church or other place of worship for at least 1 year before applying to the school.
