Baptism & Christening

About Baptism

Baptism is sometimes called Christening. It is primarily about being welcomed into membership of the Christian Church. Parents often want their children to be baptized so that as they grow up they can learn about God from the church. The Church of England respects the Baptism of other churches and those who are baptized elsewhere should not and need not be rebaptized by us.

Baptism in Kirkby

There are three Church of England churches in the parish of Kirkby. Baptisms are arranged in each church depending on the candidate’s area of residence. You can follow the links above to learn more about each church.

Baptism is about becoming a member of the Church and so we hope that everyone who is baptized, young or old, will become a part of the church that serves their neighbourhood.

Making arrangements

We have a booking session each week for all of the churches on Tuesday evenings, 6.15pm to 7.15pm at St. Andrew’s Church, Highfield, Tower Hill.

There are no charges made by any of our churches for baptism. We believe it is important to welcome new members in this way. Each church tends to offer just one or two Sundays in a month when they can baptize and the services are normally at 12.45pm.

    That is lovely you do not charge for christenings. It is such an important time in a new baby’s life. I support the work you are doing – keep it up. Cary
