Those who live within the Parish and can with integrity make the affirmations required within Baptism, may have their children baptised at St Chad’s. Baptisms are normally held in the Parish Church on the second and fourth Sunday of each month at 12.30pm.

Discover all you need to know about Church of England Baptisms at the following link.

When we bring our children to be christened, as parents and godparents we are beginning their faith journey with them, we are making a public commitment to bring them up within Christian values, to know God and his love for them.
This can feel like a daunting task. So, we would like to help you explore how your child can grow in the Christian faith and point you towards some helpful resources.
Please come along to one of our information evenings. Sessions last no more than one hour and include wine and nibbles and the chance to talk to other families. You don't need to book! Come as parents and feel free to bring godparents and grandparents. If you can't find childcare, then bring the children as well.
We look forward to supporting you further. Our 'One more step' evenings will be held in church on the following dates:

Tuesday 15 January at 7.30pm

Tuesday 19 March at 7.30pm

Tuesday 21 May at 7.30pm

You may like to find out a little more about baptism before committing to the open meeting detailed above and if so you are warmly invited to come to the Church on any Tuesday evening between 6.30pm and 7.30pm when members of the clergy will be available to help with any such queries.
