Request a baptism


Contact the parish office by phone or email to check the availability of the church for the baptism. At this point the baptism can be entered into the parish diary and the day and time will be set aside for you.


  • The parish office will then send to the parent/s who made the enquiry:
  • A letter confirming the time and date of the baptism, with details of the parish preparation program.
  • An application form.
  • The Order of Service to be used.
  • A Thanksgiving envelope.
  • Advice about selecting godparents.

Parent/s return the completed application form to the office, providing details of the child to be baptized and the names of the godparents.

If you are not a regular attendee of the Parish of St Johns we would encourage you to consider making a donation to assist with costs of the parish. A suggested donation might be $200. If you would like to make a more substantial gift in the thanksgiving of your child please speak to the vicar.
