Baptism (also known as christening) is the start of our journey of faith, a sign of a new beginning as we join the family of the Church.  In the case of the baptism of children, it is also a time when we thank God for the gift of a child and is a very special day for parents, godparents, friends and family.

You are very welcome to explore taking this important step for yourself or for your child at All Hallows by the Tower if you live in the parish, regularly attend our church, or have a significant connection to All Hallows. Baptism normally takes place during our Sunday morning service.

In the first instance you should come along to our 11.00 am Sunday service and speak to a member of the clergy afterwards. A meeting will then be arranged in order to talk through the practicalities and to explore the purpose of baptism and what it means for you and your family.
