Baptism, or Christening, is often the first step parents take along the journey of faith with their child and it is a popular decision to take.

The Church of England welcomes all babies, children & families for baptism – whatever shape that family takes, whether parents are married or not, Christian or non-Christian. During a baptism service, parents, godparents and the wider church make important choices and decisions about bringing up a child in a loving relationship with God, until children are able to make these choices for themselves. It is also a time to celebrate the gift of a child, and pray for their future.

We aim for baptisms to take place during our 10:30am service on the third Sunday of the month.  If you are considering getting your child baptised at St James, please come along to one of our Sunday services and speak to one of the sidespersons or wardens who will be able to help you. Alternatively, you can get in touch with Rev. John Sephton on 07929 512847.
