Baptisms

RSS

Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church, and we are always delighted to host such a joyful day. Christenings at St. Piran's Church can be during a service or held as a separate occasion. Whenever it is done, your child will be baptized and with the support of the church, you and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith.

We use the water from St. Piran's well, which is specially blessed for the occasion.

All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on:churchofenglandchristenings.org.

There are no fees for baptism services. However, there is a charge of £13.00 for a certificate. 

The fee for a certificate issued at the time of baptism is for a certified copy of the entry in the register book of baptisms giving the particulars required in Form No 1 in Schedule 1 to the Parochial Registers and Records Measure 1978. The fees payable for a certified copy of the full entry issued at any other time are the fes prescribed for searching registers of baptisms and burials and, if applicable, for each additional copy of an entry in such a register.

To arrange a christening, please use our Contacts page and contact a Church Warden, who will put you in touch with the necessary clergy.
