BAPTISM PREPARATION Do you have a baby for baptism?  If so, congratulations.  Ordinarily we hold a meeting on the last Thursday of every month at which we explain our procedures and hand out the forms.  This month the last Thursday is Maundy Thursday, so there will be no Baptism Preparation Meeting until 25th April.

If you do not want to wait that long to have your baby baptised, up until Easter only, you may collect the forms from the Parish Office.  Please refer to the times when the office is ‘manned’ by Jo, the secretary.  After Easter, please wait until the 25th April meeting.
