I’ve not been baptised; can I still have my child done?
Both parents and godparents need to have been baptised -
We’re not married -
If you’ve had a child together and want the best for him or her then that is great. Not being married is not a bar for baptism.

I’m a single parent -
Not to the church. It’s fine, so long as the child’s other parent does not have a legal right to object to the baptism.
We don’t normally come to church -
No, but we do ask you to attend church at least once before the baptism so that you and your family feel a part of the church community which you and your child is being welcomed to.
Baptism is about joining the community of Christians. You need to think about whether that is what you want. If you want to give thanks for the safe arrival of a new baby, but are not sure about making promises you may not be able to keep, then we offer a service of Thanksgiving.

What if I’m not sure that I actually believe in God?
Good question. Sometimes the pressure to have a child baptised comes from outside -
