We are delighted to receive enquiries for Baptisms, also known as Christening, either for the new member of your family or for yourself.

During a christening your child will be baptised with water and welcomed as part of a wider church family. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.

To give you the best possible support as you prepare for your Christening, we will invite you to come to a Sunday service where you will be welcomed by one of our team and given a form to complete. Shortly after this you will receive a call from Rhiannon, our Children and Families Worker, who will pencil in a provisional date for your Baptism and invite you, your child (children) and Godparents to an hour-long Baptism preparation session.

Baptism / Christening services take place at Romsey Abbey at 12.45pm on the first and third Sundays of each month, or as close to this pattern as possible. It is also possible for a Christening to take place during one of our main Sunday morning services.

To make a Christening enquiry and find out more, call the parish office 01794 513125 Mon – Fri 9am to 3pm or email parishoffice@romseyabbey.org.uk

We look forward to welcoming you.

We welcome you into the Lord’s family;
We are children of
the same heavenly Father.

We welcome you.
