Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua),
and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."

If you live in the Crawley Parish and would like to arrange a child baptism please fill out the 'Baptism Application Form' below and send it to us via email at

We will contact you and arrange a preliminary meeting. You will then be invited to come to the Baptism Preparation sessions.
