Baptism Policy in Balfron & Fintry


Firstly , fantastic news that you are looking to be baptised, We are willing to consider baptism for anyone living within the parishes of Balfron & Fintry and also for those who have family living in the parishes of Balfron & Fintry,  but who currently live elsewhere.


To discuss this please contact the minister either in person, email admin@balfronchurch.org.uk or call her on 01360 440252, where she will arrange a time for a preparation meeting.


This one hour preparation meeting for parents* will be held in the manse or Vestry and will aim to:

  1. Consider vows and commitment of Service of Baptism and, if appropriate, Service of Blessing
  2. emphasise – in the case of Baptism especially - the importance of a link with the Church
  3. Deal with the practicalities of the baptism service



We usually have our Baptisms during our usual Sunday services and we welcome friends and family to join you in making your promises. In the baptismal service those appropriate adults profess their own faith and promise to give the child a Christian upbringing. In the case of adult baptism the person himself or herself makes the appropriate promises.
