Baptism Certificates

Certificates, Registers and Candles

Every child that is baptised will receive a certificate of baptism. This is usually given to the parents a few minutes after the service has ended. In addition to this your child’s name is also entered into the Baptism Register which you are welcome to view. When a child is baptised he or she receives the light of Christ in their lives and this is symbolised in the giving of a candle that has been lit from the Paschal (Easter) candle. There is no charge for these items.
If you were baptised some years ago and need a new copy of your certificate there may be a legal fee required. Please enquire if you would like to know more.
