New baby . . . . . . .think about Baptism. Come and make a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God's people. Bring your children along to St John's and enquire about a Baptism occasion for them and your family.

You may have been going to church for a while and want to make a more definite commitment in terms of your Christian faith - then let us know that you'd like to be Confirmed.

Confirmation is the service when those who have previously been baptized affirm those promises as adults.

If you are considering a Baptism or Confirmation, please contact the Church Office who will be delighted to help. Please use the contact form below.

Pilgrim is a major new teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England which we use at Barlaston Church. It aims to help every church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.

Pilgrim approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion, but participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with a group of fellow travellers.
