St John the Evangelist Walton


In baptism, you as parents are thanking God for the gift of life, deciding to start your child on the journey of faith and asking for the Church’s help and support.

For your child, baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from the darkness of self-centredness, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family.


Baptism is a ‘sacrament’ which means that it is a visible sign of God’s love.For further general information please click on the following link:
