Baptisms

Baptism for babies and children takes place in a service often called a Christening. In this service parents thank God for his gift of life, make a decision to start their child on a journey of faith.  The church congregation promises to welcome the child and support the child and family throughout their journey. Godparents also promise to support and help develop the faith.

These beautiful and joyous services are easy to organise here at St Stephens, and as we are welcoming a child into the Church there are no costs involved. Our Parish Office is open every Wednesday between 7-7.30pm for inquiries for Baptisms. You can also send us a message via the contact page. 

The service is made to suit you, everything down to the flowers and the songs we sing together.
