Christenings (also known as baptisms)
Baptisms of children and/or adults can be arranged as part of a regular service or as a separate service.
When children are born these days there are a number of options available to parents or guardians: A civil Welcome ceremony at a register office or other registered building, a service of welcome and thanksgiving, or a service of baptism where parents and godparents make a commitment to nurture the child in the Christian faith.
We are happy to help you choose whichever form of ceremony is appropriate for you, your child and your own faith journey.
If you are looking to arrange a baptism, or service of welcome and thanksgiving then 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 to meet a member of the ministry team and discuss your wishes and plans. Once you have met with a member of the team and completed the relevant form we should be able to 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 it will be necessary for you to be in contact with your local parish to get their goodwill for the service to take place in Frome. This circumstance principally relates to those who have been married here, or to couples who have previously had children baptised here, and wish to continue their connection.
You can complete the relevant form in advance of visiting:
