BAPTISM OF CHILDREN IN THE PARISH OF YATE
Baptism Services are on the first and third Sundays of the month
You can arrange baptism at St. Mary's, or any of the churches in the Parish.

Bookings are taken at our Parish Office, for which you can find contact details, and opening times, on our Contact Us page.

Baptism on the 1st Sunday will be during the 10:45 service and on the 3rd Sunday, in the 9:30 service.

Before Baptism, a Preparation Session will be held. The sessions are normally held at 7:45 pm at St. Nicholas' Church, Abbotswood and last for about 45 minutes. You will be advised of the date and place when you book. Here you will finalise arrangements and share the meaning and responsibilities of the Baptism of Children.
Parents are expected to attend the preparation and Godparents living locally are invited to. Please make every effort to be present.

We regret that we cannot proceed with the Baptism until we have met the parents for a time of preparation. If this is difficult, please contact us so that alternative arrangements can be made.

Meanwhile, you are welcome, and encouraged, to attend regularly with your child, to one of the churches in the Parish.
