3. What preparation will there be?
One of our ministers will meet with you to explain about the service, and the different parts of the ritual mean. This meeting takes about an hour and should ideally be in church.
For the christening of a baby or young child, this meeting is all the preparation you will need. For adults and some older children, it is helpful to discuss whether it would be right to be confirmed as well as baptised.
Confirmations happen once a year, in preparation for which candidates from St Peter’s attend weekly sessions spread across several weeks.
