Holy Redeemer is a church at the heart of the community here in Lamorbey, Sidcup. We are a vibrant, inclusive, friendly and creative Christian hub where people grow in faith, character and experience the hope and the good news of the gospel. Our brand new church facility and community centre are both great spaces for hire and are used for a variety of sports and activity clubs, classes, hospitality and training events, concerts, and fellowship groups. We have green space and wildlife all around us, a popular pre-school and we are a silver award winning Eco Church. We hope you will be able to join us at one of our services.

Baptism is a wonderful sacrament and a visible sign of God’s
love and grace. We are welcomed into the Christian church and begin our journey
of faith.

You can apply to have a child or children baptised (often
called a Christening) and you can be baptised yourself (adults and teenagers
are usually confirmed alongside this)

To find out more about applying for Baptism, contact the Reverend Mell Jemmett by emailing vicar@theholyredeemer.co.uk or call 0208 300 1508.

For more information go to the Christenings or Adult Baptism pages at The Church of England.
