Weddings & Baptisms

Baptism of children and adults

  • Baptism can happen at any stage of life, from small babies to adults. Baptism is a gift from God and is open to all. You do not need to be a member of the church in order to have a child Baptised. We are always happy to explain what is involved in the service and what it all means.
  • To arrange a Baptism please contact the Rector.  Baptisms usually take place on a Sunday during the 10.30 am service

  • The General Registrar Office for Scotland has information on the legal issues involved in getting married:
