Christenings

Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church, and we would love to meet you if you would like to have your child christened/baptised at St John the Baptist. The christening is usually part of a main Sunday service but it is also possible to arrange, at a different time, a special service.

All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on: churchofenglandchristenings.org. It also includes information about another church service to say thank you to god for your child. It’s possible to have this service instead of a christening if you decide that now isn’t the right time to have your child baptized.

You might also choose this service when your baby is just born, or if you have adopted a child into your family and you simply want to celebrate this with special words said by a vicar in church.

Whatever the reason, your vicar will be delighted to talk to you about this service: https://churchofenglandchristenings.org/for-parents/thanksgiving-service.

Our usual Sunday services at Marldon in January, February and March are at 9.15 am. However, on February 10th there will be NO SERVICE at Marldon as there will be a Team Service at St. John's Totnes at 10.30.

On January 27th, February 24th and March 24th there will be a spoken Celtic Communion (which tends to be a shorter family service.)

Mothering Sunday is on March 31st - all Mums, Dads and Guardians welcome!

All welcome to any or all of our services. We'd love to see you there!
