Baptism (also known as a Christening) is an important celebration in the Christian faith.

Child Baptism

We are delighted that you are considering having your child baptised. Anyone who lives in the Parish is entitled to have their children baptised at Leeds Minster. If you are unsure of the parish in which you live, you can check by using the postcode finder on A Church Near You.

If you live outside the Parish it may still be possible to have the Baptism at Leeds Minster, but we would need you to ask your parish church to contact us first, to check that they are happy with the baptism taking place here. For more information or to book a baptism please email baptisms@leedsminster.org.

Adult Baptism

If you would like to consider Baptism as an adult please arrange to speak with a member of the clergy. We would normally like you to attend worship for six months and would encourage you to be baptised and confirmed in the same service. For more information please email contact@leedsminster.org.
