Baptisms

We welcome enquiries for Baptisms at Holy Cross, St Sampson's, St John's or All Saints. Please download and read our Baptism pack (PDF 428KB), which explains the commitment and promises made by parents and Godparents in the Baptism service.

If you would like to go ahead with either a Baptism or a Service of Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child, please either attend a service to talk to Rev Phil Bradley or Rev Shirley Danby or fill in the online Baptism Application Form. In Cricklade you can come along to a 4pm Informal Worship Service at St Sampson’s School Hall on any Sunday (except the 1st Sunday of the month. Please see the Calendar for details). Alternatively for Ashton Keynes and Leigh Baptisms, you may also attend either Messy Church at 4pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month or 10am Family Service on the 1st Sunday of the month, and see the service leader afterwards (again, please check the Calendar).

Using Churches for events

Our churches can also be booked for events. For example, St Sampson's Church has made a wonderful venue for Cricklade Art Group's exhibitions and is also used for concerts. Please use the contact us form to enquire.
