Baptisms and confirmations
St Mary's holds an annual confirmation service, usually involving people from its own congregation and several college chapels. The 2014 service will take place at the 10.30am service on Sunday 18th May. If you would like to be confirmed please contact the Revd Alan Ramsey, Associate Priest.
If you would like to discuss baptism for either yourself or a child, please contact Canon Brian Mountford.
