This is a ceremony to welcome someone, usually a baby or small child, into the Christian church.  The meaning of baptism will be discussed with you at a preliminary evening meeting together with others who are considering baptism for themselves or their children.

Baptisms are usually held at midday or early afternoon on the second and fourth Sundays of the month, or by arrangement. 

Please contact the church office initially, Mon-Fri 10 am-12 noon, 01237 474078, 9 Church Walk, Bideford.  EX39 2BP.  You will then be asked to come along, with other parents, to a Baptism Introductory Evening when the basics about baptism will be explained, and you will complete the necessary form, and the Baptism date will be set.

We look forward to seeing you!
