If you would like your child to be baptised (or christened) at St Mary with St Alban, please email with the name and date of birth of your child/children and we will get in touch with you as soon as we can. Or contact The Rev David Cloake on 07729 944769 or

We conduct baptisms at noon on most Sundays throughout the year. The service lasts 30 minutes and usually involves 2 families. Occasionally we also baptise during our 10am Parish Communion, especially if the family are regular members of the congregation.

At Baptisms three things happen:

  • We give thanks for the family of the child*.
  • As a sign of God’s love, baptism in water is given in the name of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Parents and Godparents commit themselves to the care and nurture of the newly baptised.

*Adult baptism can also take place.

The Church of England has developed a useful website that tells you all you need to know. The Light a Candle feature lets you light a virtual candle and pray for the child who is being christened.

Before your child's baptism, we may invite you to attend a baptism preparation evening, together with other parents. These are led by the Clergy and are an opportunity to talk through what is involved in your child's baptism and what it means to be baptised.

For other baptism resources, please see the Revd Mary Hawes' Pinterest page, here.
