Holy Baptism

Sometimes called 'Christenings'

Baptism for all ages

The Church of England offers baptism for all age groups, including babies, children and adults.  

We would be delighted to help you explore this opportunity for baptism.

Adult Baptism

We believe that it is particularly special when adults decide to be baptised.   

As adults, we expect candidates to take responsibility for their own decision to be baptised.   This is reflected in the order of service

The Church of England has uploaded some stories about adults getting baptised.  You can connect to these via the adjacent box.

People can be baptised at any age.   Like the student in the video, God tends to call us at significant events in our life.   

So, take the plunge and get baptised

The first step on the journey us for you to contact either Revd Jeremy Brading or Margaret Preuss-Higham -depending which of the Chesil Churches you are hoping to be baptised in.

When you have done that, they will probably invite you to one of the church services.   

Thats it !

we look forward to welcoming you to one of the churches.

What is Confirmation ?

Some adults also feel prompted to take further an earlier baptism commitment – sometimes made much earlier in their life.   This opportunity is called Confirmation.  Confirmation provides an opportunity to look more deeply into the Christian faith. 

If you want to talk to someone informally about this, contact Margaret or Jeremy
