Baptisms (Christenings)



We welcome enquiries about baptism for children or for adults.

Baptisms take place within the normal Sunday service, and on a regular Sunday of the month in two of our churches, or by arrangement at the others.

First Sunday          Good Shepherd Church, Broadwell
Second Sunday      St Peter’s Church, Clearwell
All Saints, Newland, All Saints, Staunton, St John’s @ St Margaret Mary, Coleford and St Saviour’s, Redbrook by arrangement.

From September 2017 there will only be one Baptism service a month alternating between The Good Shepherd, Broadwell one month and St Peter’s, Clearwell the next month.

Good Shepherd Broadwell: 1st Sunday in September and then on alternate months.           St Peter’s, Clearwell: 2nd Sunday in October and then on alternate months.

There may occasionally be a change to this schedule, if, for example, there is another special event happening in the life of the church, so do please check with us first.

In the first instance, we will arrange to meet with you to discuss the service.  If the commitment of a baptism doesn’t feel like what you want, then we can also offer a service of Thanksgiving for the gift of a child.
We will do what we can to accommodate your preferences, but so not to be disappointed, do please approach us in good time if you have a specific date in mind.
