We welcome enquiries for Baptisms, also commonly called Christenings, at St James’; these are usually held once a month on a Sunday at 12.30pm.

In this service, parents thank God for the gift of life; make a decision to start their child on the Christian journey of faith, and godparents promise their help and support. Older children and adults are also regularly baptised and confirmed at St James' following a course of preparation, after which they make their own promises to follow the journey of faith.

For infants and young children our Baptism procedure includes attending a few Sunday morning services and a Baptism preparation session, to which Godparents are also invited.

There is no fee for a Baptism apart from an administration charge which for 2018 is £14 per candidate.
