Baptisms and Confirmations

During the vicar vacancy in 2019, please contact Christine Allsopp (tel: 01488 674108 or 07801 096345 or email venchrisallsopp@gmail.com) if you would like your child baptised at St Michael & All Angels Lambourn. Christine will arrange to come and see you, help you fill in an application form and help you understand what baptism is all about. There is no charge for a baptism though there will be a collection held during the service.

In Eastbury and East Garston, infant baptisms are often undertaken at a special service by arrangement.

For children over the age of 10 and adults, baptism usually takes place during the annual Confirmation Service, usually in May, though the Bishop holds Confirmations regularly throughout the year and it is always possible to travel to another Deanery’s Confirmation. Confirmation preparation usually involves a number of classes which are arranged usually after Easter.
