Baptism (Christening)


The Church of England welcomes all babies, children and families - whatever shape that family takes. You do not have to be married to ask for a christening for your child. You do not have to be an active churchgoer - as parents, you do not even have to have been christened yourselves. Everyone is welcome at their local church.

During the vacancy, please contact the Churchwarden, Mrs Anne Birch. She has access to the diaries and will be able to advise you further. Emailwarden [at] sandbachchurch [dot] co [dot] uk

What services are available?
For those who are newly born, infants or young children there is a Service of Thanksgiving and later the Service of Baptism. If you have any questions, or if we can help in any way please do not hesitate to ask.  

You will find a great deal of practical information on this website as well as the Church of England's own very good website devoted to Baptisms.
