Baptism, or Christening, is the first step of an amazing journey with God. It is a sacrement of welcome into the family of the worldwide Christian Church.


Baptisms are normally held on the first Sunday of the month at Parish Praise in St Oswald’s.  If you would like your child baptised we invite you to come to one of these services first so that you can meet the vicar and the family of the church.


We would also encourage you to come for Baptism preparation which is to help you prepare and think about what Baptism means.


The Church of England has a dedicated website with a lot of information about the sacrament of Baptism, choosing God-Parents etc. 


If you have further questions or would like to book a baptism please contact the Vicar 512645.


We also offer Adult Baptism and Confirmation, please contact the vicar.
