BAPTISMS & CHRISTENINGS

Baptisms & Christenings

Our journey of faith begins with Baptism. It is a declaration of faith, a celebration of becoming part of God’s family and commitment to following Jesus Christ. 

Both adults and children can be baptised, Christening is just another word used for the baptism of a child. We are pleased to welcome those seeking Baptism of any age.
 

If you wish you to have your child baptised, please start by filling out the christening request form below. If you are an adult who wishes to be baptised, please get in touch here >

 

FAQs

Is there a charge?

No. It’s free!
If you would like to give donations on the day then we are always grateful as this helps us to continue offering this ministry in Benwell & Scotswood, but there is no pressure to do so.

We’re not married or my partner isn’t around – can we still have our child baptised?

Yes! Of course!

I am not baptised – can my child still be baptised?

Yes, of course!
All are welcome to be baptised. We encourage you to choose Godparents who have been baptised as the people to guide and encourage your child in faith. However, if there is someone special who you would like to have a role, then we will certainly involve them in the service and make sure that is celebrated.

Can adults be baptised?

Yes! Anyone can be baptised. Speak to us and we will talk you through what happens. Normally we will help adults prepare by doing a short baptism course with them.
