Baptism at St Luke’s

Baptism or Christening is the first step on your faith journey. It is a public declaration that you want to follow Jesus and live your life according to his teaching.

Anyone can be baptized here – you do not need to live in our parish or have a connection to the church.

Baptisms normally take place during our Sunday morning service which starts @ 10:30am, although they may take place at other times by arrangement.

If you want to celebrate the birth of your child or would prefer them to make the choice of becoming a Christian when they are older, then you might want to consider a Thanksgiving Service instead. Thanksgiving is a celebration of a new life, asking for God’s blessing without the commitment that a full baptism gives.
