Christenings – also known as baptisms

Christenings of children and adults can be arranged as part of a regular service or as a separate service.

Please visit us during our Open Doors session, which is a drop-in session held in church on the second Saturday of every month from 10.30am to 12 noon. 

It's a chance for you to meet a member of the ministry team and discuss your wishes and plans. We can then complete the relevant form and plan a date and time for the service.


We might be able to hold a date provisionally before then, but any booking is only firm once that meeting has taken place and the form has been received and checked.


If you live outside Frome, but wish your child to be baptised at St John's – perhaps because you were married here or previously had children baptised here – you will need to contact your local parish to get their goodwill for the service to take place in Frome. 

In advance of visiting you can download and complete the relevant form to bring with you by  clicking here:
