At St Peter and St Paul we offer a private Baptism service on the first Sunday of the month at 12.45pm or 2pm.  This is a service for just and your family.  If you would prefer a Baptism during the main 9.15am Mass, then we have a Family Mass on the first Sunday of the month at 9.15am.

Baptism is a great time for celebration as a person is welcomed into the church family.  For children and adults it is an important public step. When babies are baptised it is often called a Christening.  In the service parents thank God for his gift of life, make a decision to start their child on a journey of faith and godparents promise help and support.  The church also promises to welcome the child and to pray for the family.

There is no charge for Baptisms at St Peter and St Paul.
