Hoo St Werburgh Parish Church

We are delighted that you are interested in baptism (also known as christening) and are very happy to talk to you about baptism for your child or you. Please contact us to start the ball rolling. You may prefer to e-mail us by clicking here: Baptism Enquiry

Once you have made contact, you will be invited to a baptism preparation session at which details of baptism services and the options we offer will be explained. We will also invite you to attend services to meet the team and see what type of service is best suited to you. Most baptisms take place on the fourth Sunday of the month at 12 noon, but there are other options for adults and children.

Sometimes, seeing someone else baptized, deciding to have your own child christened or being asked to be a godparent, can make us think about our own journey of faith. If you were not christened as a young child, you may now be thinking about making this commitment.

Whatever led you to this point, baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives.
