One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism
Ephesians 4:5

Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.
Mark 16:16

Baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from all that is evil, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family.  At baptism you promise to raise your child to know God loves them, and to help them to follow Jesus as a member of the Church

They promise to pray and support the child and to help the parents to bring up the child in the Christian faith. You should have at least three godparents: two of the same sex as the child and one of the opposite sex. Godparents can be family members or friends.  It is important that you choose people who will take an interest in your child's spiritual welfare and who will pray for you and your child.  Godparents must be baptised themselves.

What does it cost?  A Baptism service is free, however there may be a small charge for a certificate.

I'm not a regular churchgoer.  Can I still have my child baptised?  Yes. The Church believes that God's love is available to all, regardless of their background.

CofE baptisms are typically held on the first sunday in the month at 12 noon. To book a baptism please attend our weekly vestry time (Tuesday 6:45 - 7:15pm).

For RC baptisms please contact the parish office 0151 422 1772. They will be able to assist you in booking your service.

Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) Journey in Faith
The journey in faith group covers basic Christian doctrine and life. The course runs from autumn through to Pentecost. It was primarily designed for non baptised people who wish to become members of the Christian Church either Church of England or Roman Catholic. But has been extended to include baptised persons who wish to deepen their knowledge of and commitment to their Church. 

People who have chosen this path towards the Sacraments within our Parish have found the friendship within the group has really helped them on their journey in faith.  The meetings usually consist of some basic preparation material, some input, group discussions and open forum session.
