We are delighted that you are considering baptism – also known as Christening – at Sunderland Minster, whether for yourself or for a member of your family.
In baptism, we welcome you into the family of God. It is a significant event within a life-long journey of faith. Before the baptism itself, we will meet with you to explore that journey, as it has brought you to this point, and how it might continue from here.
Baptisms may take place at the 9.45 a.m. Sung Eucharist service on the first Sunday of the month, or at a Baptism service at 2.00 p.m. on the third Sunday of the month.
Ordinarily, only one person (child or adult) would be baptised at a time in the morning service; and no more than two families at the afternoon service. If you are expecting a large number of guests, we would recommend booking an afternoon. We regret that it is not possible to hold baptisms at other times.
To book a baptism, please contact our church office.
