Christening cropped

A christening is when a baby or child is formally welcomed into the Christian church by being baptised with water. It’s also an opportunity to thank God for the gift of a child.

We love holding christenings at St. Mary’s and you would be very welcome to have your child christened during our morning service at 10am or during our special Christening Services which are usually held  on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month at 12.30pm.
