Benefice of Whitwick, Thringstone & Swannington

         Wedding & Baptism Enquiries 


In Baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young children; this is also known as Christening. Baptism is a 'sacrament' (holy ritual to symbolise grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan. Find out more about Christening at

Older children and adults may also be baptised.

Baptisms/Christenings usually take place: 

At St John the Baptist Whitwick - on a first Sunday of the month at 10.30am.

At St Andrew’s Thringstone - on a first Sunday of the month at 10.30am.

At St George’s Swannington - on a third Sunday of the month at 10.30am.
