Preparing for your child’s baptism

If you are planning to baptise your child at St Bartholomew’s or St Mary’s, we ask you to attend a preparation session before you book a date for the baptism service.

The baptism preparation sessions last about 90 minutes, and are held regularly throughout the year.

The dates, times and venues for the next few sessions are in the table below.
