Baptism

In Baptism (sometimes called Christening), we publicly acknowledge God’s love for us, and in return, we commit to loving and serving God in our lives. So, baptism is when people become ‘official’ members of the Church, the worldwide family of Christians – people who are followers of Jesus Christ.

People of all ages can be baptised. However, young children are unable to make these commitments for themselves and so parents and godparents make them on the child’s behalf, promising to help them grow as Christians until they are old enough to take responsibility for this themselves.

If you are thinking about baptism for yourself or for your child in the Church of England in Ollerton & Boughton, we invite you to come to an informal ‘Baptism Enquiry session.’ These are usually held on the fourth Saturday of the month* in St Paulinus Community Centre and Church Hall or St Paulinus Church and last for about 1 hour. Here you will have an opportunity to explore what baptism really means so you can decide if it’s for you. If you decide it is, we can then book a baptism. Baptisms take place in all three of our church buildings.

For more info, or to find out when the next Baptism Enquiry Session is, come along to the Church Office at St. Paulinus’, New Ollerton, on the Second Tuesday of each month, between 6.30 and 7.30pm or contact us using the enquiry form.
