St Peter’s, Formby has an open baptism policy. This begins from a belief that baptism is a free gift from God, graciously given to all who would receive it and that, although the faith of individuals may be limited, the faith of the Church will make up for this.
St Peter’s, Formby is the parish church and its doors are open to all comers, no matter where they lie on the spectrum of Christian witness. Our Christian approach is one of generosity, welcome, nurture and support.
Baptism will be offered to anyone who lives within the parish boundaries and, at the discretion of the clergy, those with a qualifying connection with St Peter’s.
Baptisms will normally take place during the 10:00am Eucharist or once a month at a 12 noon service on a Sunday as arranged with the Vicar.
Families will be visited by the Vicar to set a date and to discuss details of the baptism.
Anniversary cards will be sent each year after the baptism until the child starts school.
To arrange a baptism please contact the Vicar via the Parish Office.
