In baptism, God calls us out of darkness into his marvellous light.

Take the first steps on an amazing journey.

At a christening your child will be baptised with water and signed with a cross to welcome them into the Christian church.  

They will receive a special candle to symbolise the light which Jesus brings into our world.

Parents and godparents make promises to pray for your child and help them on the Christian journey of life.  Christenings normally take place during our main Sunday service at 10.30 am so that we can welcome you into our community at St Mary's Church in Banbury.

We are here to help you on that amazing journey.
