If you live in the Parish of All Saints you are automatically entitled to have your child baptised (also called Christening) at All Saints Church. To discover whether you live in the ecclesiastical parish of All Saints, Branksome Park put your postcode into the Church of England parish finder website www.achurchnearyou.com We are also delighted to baptise adults who haven’t been baptised before, normally as part of Confirmation.
In baptism, parents thank God for his gift of life, make a decision to start the child on the journey of faith and ask for the Church's support. Baptisms normally take place during a Sunday morning service at our 9.30am services, so the church congregation can welcome the child into the Church and declare their intention to support and pray for the child, parents and godparents.
If you do not live in the Parish of All Saints' but have an association with All Saints' please click on the button below and complete the Child Baptism Request Form or just come along to one of our Sunday services.

We have a large and well maintained Church Hall. It can be used as one large hall and has dividing doors to give the flexibility to make it into two halls; one being larger than the other. There is a fully equipped kitchen with cutlery and glasses and a variety of tables and chairs are all included in the cost of hire.
It is possible for people living within the Parish or associated with the Church, to hire it for parties, social events and meetings, depending on the type of gathering and the time it finishes. Out of consideration to our neighbours we do have restrictions on its use.
