St Laurence’s church is now taking bookings for christening services in November. There are no more spaces available for the summer or early autumn.

To book a christening service at St Laurence’s you need to be a resident of the parish of Cowley.

You can find out which parish you live in by visiting A Church Near You and typing in your postcode. The website will tell you where your local church is and how to contact it to talk about christening your child.

Baptism certificates are £13 each. Godparent certificates are £3 each. Personalised service booklets are £1.50.

Godparents should be baptised Christians. When a child is baptised the godparents promise to support the child in his or her lifelong journey as a follower of Jesus.

To find out about baptism as an adult it’s a good idea to attend Sunday services regularly.
