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 this year’s sessions – St Leonard’s Church Webheath, St Philip’s Church Webheath or St Stephen’s Church Redditch – are in the table below.
