Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Can I have my child baptised in Walmer if I don't live in the parish?

A - Yes, as long as you attend services at one of the parish churches and go to the preparation sessions. The vicar in your parish will be informed.

Q - We married in Walmer but moved away and now want to have our baby baptised in Walmer?

A - It may be best to go to a local church and become part of the congregation there. They will be able to support you more effectively. However, whether you attend church there already or not, with the agreement of your vicar, baptism could be arranged in Walmer.

Q - I am unsure about the Christian faith but want to mark my child's birth in a special way?

A - If baptising does not feel right for your family then there is an alternative. A thanksgiving for the gift of a child.
