Baptism at St Nicolas

We're delighted you are thinking about baptism. The first step is to contact the Parish Administrator. Baptisms can take place during our main 9.30am Parish Eucharist on Sunday or at a separate baptism service held on Saturday at 11.00am..

Baptism of babies and children  

The Baptism of a child involves the parents making a serious commitment and requires careful thought.  Parents need to be able to promise to give their child every opportunity to grow up within the family of the Church. It is a requirement of the Church of England that godparents are themselves baptised. 

Baptism of adults and older children

Those seeking Baptism for themselves will need to undertake a course of instruction appropriate to their age. The candidate will also need to worship regularly with us during the period of instruction and want to make a commitment to be involved with the church on a continuing basis.

Baptism is free of charge
