Baptism Form

Click on form to download and please return to the Church Office at the Parish Hall or by email.  Once the completed form is returned you will be contacted to arrange a convenient time for the Rector to meet with both parents in preparation for the baptism.


It is usual to have three godparents, two of the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex, but to have one godfather and one godmother is sufficient. Church law requires that godparents should be baptised and confirmed, but the requirement of confirmation can be relaxed in certain cases.
