Christenings at St Martin’s

Your child will be welcomed into the Family of God at your christening at St Martin’s in Epsom.

All gather round the font, the basin holding the holy water, and the child is baptised by the vicar and anointed with holy oil. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith, supported by godparents and by the whole congregation. 

Prior to the Christening, we’ll invite parents and godparents to a Baptism Session to explore what the ritual of baptism means, and the important role that parents and godparents play in the spiritual well-being of the child. Adults may also get baptised.

We hold Christening services on the third Sunday of the month at 11.30am. It’s an informal service with contemporary music and everyone is encouraged to join in and enjoy themselves! Please get in touch with Gina Ciesco in the Parish Office to arrange a Christening.
