Baptism & Confirmation

Baptism & Confirmation

Baptism is the way people show they want to follow Jesus. St Barnabas has hosted many baptisms and we are always delighted to support anyone who wishes to make this great step. We also warmly welcome babies to be baptised (also known as ‘christened’).

If you are interested in being baptised or having your child baptised, please contact the church office via office@st-barnabas.net

If you were baptised as a child, the church encourages you to receive something called ‘confirmation’, once you are old enough to answer for yourself. ‘Confirmation’ is where the bishop comes to church and prays for the person being confirmed to receive the Holy Spirit – the power of God to live for Jesus in daily life. Again if you are interested in being confirmed, we’d love to hear from you – just contact the church office on: office@st-barnabas.net
