St John the Baptist Parish Church
Weddings and Baptisms
Your questions answered…..
If you are resident in the Parish of Crowthorne or a regular worshipper at St John’s and would like to bring your child up in the Christian faith, as a member of the Church, then please contact the Vicar about baptism. It may even be that you yourself have never been baptised and would like to make a Christian commitment – there is no age limit for baptism!
When: Generally the 2nd Sunday of the month during the main morning worship.
The Service: The baptism forms an integral part of the Holy Communion service at 10 am.
Font: After the sermon the ministers and baptismal parties gather around the stone font at the back of the church for the baptism itself.
Small people: Children are welcome to gather near the font to get a good view during the baptism. There is Sunday school and a crèche available during the service.
Donations: There is no charge for a baptism. During the service we will take up our regular offering for the work of the church during one of the hymns. Please contribute to the plate if you would like to.
Godparents: All Godparents must be baptised and ideally confirmed.

St John’s may be the place for you… If you live in the parish of Crowthorne, are on the electoral role of St John’s or have a qualifying connection with the parish then we should be able to talk business. Please contact the Vicar.
