Baptisms & Confirmation

Baptism and Thanksgiving

We warmly congratulate you if you have recently welcomed a precious one to the world! Like many people at this wonderful stage of life, you may be looking for a way to thank God for giving you such an amazing gift, and start them on an amazing journey of faith. Over the years it is a journey you will share with your child by praying for them, teaching them more about the Christian faith and helping them to make Godly choices in their life.

Here at Chanctonbury Church, we count it as a privilege to offer you the opportunity to do just that, by Baptism or Dedication of a child during one of our Sunday services, as part of our corporate worship as a church family.

We would encourage you to come along and introduce yourself by joining us on a Sunday morning at one of our services and we can start to explore this with you. You can also fill out the form below to let us know your interest.

On a practical note, we generally baptise children using a font, but offer the opportunity for full immersion in our baptism pool (see photo above) several times a year for those who would like to renew their baptism vows or to be baptised for the first time.  Please complete the form below if you would like to find out more about this.

We look forward to seeing you!

Adult Baptism and Confirmation

If you are a teenager or adult, and you have put your whole trust in Jesus, we would love to explore with you what it means and what is involved in being baptised.

If you are already baptised, being confirmed is an important next stage in the Christian faith. It is a moment to confirm your baptismal vows, to confirm your participation in church life – and for the Bishop to confirm to the whole community that your faith is real!

We usually have an opportunity for confirmation once a year – do get in touch by filling out the form below for the latest information.
