Baptisms

If you live in Chilworth parish or worship regularly at St Martha’s or St Thomas' and would like to hold a baptism, please contact the Vicar for more information.

Baptism of a child

In a baptism service, the child is baptised on the understanding that they will be brought up within the Christian faith and that their faith will be nurtured in the home and within a local church congregation. In the service, parents and godparents make declarations and promises about their own faith and about their intention to nurture their child’s faith.
