Baptism & Thanksgiving

Baptism is a sacrament, a holy ritual to symbolise grace

In baptism we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love.

Baptism is a sacrament, a holy ritual to symbolise grace, in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.

Chelmsford Cathedral is pleased to baptise those who live within the Cathedral parish, and members of our congregation. 

Baptisms take place during the 9.30am family service on particular Sundays. Those who live outside our parish should contact their own parish church; you can find out which parish you live in by clicking on the link here.

If you would like more information about a baptism at the Cathedral please contact Lindsay Rae in the Cathedral Office who will be happy to discuss it with you.
