Baptism is an outward sign publicly marking the start of a lifelong journey as a Christian, and membership of the Church community. Our baptisms usually take place in our main 10.30am service.
To find out more about baptism please see the Church of England's website on Baptism.
Enquiries about baptisms can be made at the church office or through a member of the clergy team.
At Confirmation, those baptised as infants confirm for themselves the promises made on their behalf by their parents and godparents at baptism. Confirmation services with the Bishop of Willesden are held at St John’s every two years and are preceded by a course which explores more about the Christian faith.
To find out more about Confirmation, please see the Church of England's website on Confirmation.
Enquiries about Confirmation can be made at the church office or through a member of the clergy team.

All Saints Day: a chance to remember every year
Every year on the first Sunday in November we have a special service to remember friends, neighbours and family members who have died. If you would like the names of your loved ones to be read out, you can do so in person during the church service or send us their details and requests for prayer. Please send this information to the vicar Anna Poulson email@example.com.
