At St Mary Magdalene baptisms, whether infant or adult, normally take place within the Church Family Worship service at 10.00am on the first Sunday of the month. However in special circumstances a private service may be arranged.

There will be a preparation visit to your home by a member of the clergy and an assistant, at which time the meaning of baptism will be explained and the part that you have to play in it.

An alternative to Baptism is a service of Thanksgiving.


Usually confirmation is offered once a year in differing churches in Taunton. The Bishop attends in order to lay on hands on the candidates. Confirmation enables the candidates to confirm their faith whether they were baptised as infants or later in life.

For more information on either baptisms or confirmations please contact the Parish Office directly, or alternatively you can Message Us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
