Baptism marks the first stage of our journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. For some people this happens as a baby or child, for others it may be as an adult – and it is never too late.

We offer a special service for baptism in which the child/person being baptised will be welcomed into the church family and Christian faith. Water will be poured on their head from the font as a sign of dedication to the faith.

Baptism services usually take place at 12:00pm, shortly after one of our regular Sunday services at either of our churches – All Saints (for Ferndale residents) or St Barnabas (for Gorse Hill residents). If you do not live in either of our parishes, you would need to have a qualifying connection to this area (e.g. a strong family history in this area, or your previous child was baptised here).
