Baptism/Christening and Confirmation

The Christening (or Baptism) of a child is always a very joyful ocassion. You can find out much more about Baptism here.

Whilst it is always good to have the opportunity to welcome a child into the church family at the regular Sunday service we appreciate that 9am on a Sunday morning won't work for everyone, especially if family and friends are travelling to join you. We will work with you to find the time that works best in your situation.

Children who have been Baptised at St Lawrence are welcome with the families to join our Messy Church community. You can find out more about Messy Church here (link to Messy Church page)

Please complete the Baptism application form which you can find here.

Older children and adults are normally Confirmed following their Baptism as they have made the Baptismal promises for themselves. In this special service the Bishop recongnises the newly Baptised as part of the church family.
