Baptism (also called Christening)

To enquire about you or your child being baptised at All Saints, Leek Wootton, please contact Jim Perryman (Priest-in-Charge).  Baptisms take place as part of our normal Sunday morning services.  We do not arrange Baptisms at other times.  Specific dates will not normally be discussed prior to a home visit.  Because of practicalities, it may be some months before a suitable date can be offered so please make initial enquiries in good time.  Adults seeking baptism would be expected to attend some form of preparation course and show evidence of their Christian faith.

It may be that you would prefer to opt for a service of Thanksgiving, either as a preliminary to, or in preference to, Baptism.  A service of this type can be organised at short notice and at a date and time convenient to the family outside of Sunday services.  Information about the Thanksgiving service can be found here:

Please be aware that Baptism (Christening) is normally only offered to those who live within the parish or to those who are regular worshippers.  If you have a strong family connection with the parish, then we would consider your request, but would still recommend that you seek Baptism in your home parish.  We would, in any case, need to get the good will of the incumbent of your home parish before agreeing to any request.

Information about the Baptism service can be found here:
