Thanksgiving and Baptism 

Thanksgiving and Baptism

If you have a new baby in your household, many congratulations! Whether it's your first or your third, this will be a very busy, exciting and tiring time for you! However, it is also a time when many parents want to give thanks to God for the arrival of their child, marking that occasion in a special way with family and friends.We offer a Service of Thanksgiving for the arrival of a new child, with the opportunity for subsequent Baptism at a later date. A member of the clergy will be able to talk through Thanksgiving and Baptism and the difference between the two services. All Baptisms and Thanksgivings are held during our normal 9.30am morning service. To arrange things, discuss any questions or hear about the support that All Saints can provide, please do not hesitate to contact Sarah in the Church Office on 01444 482405.

Baptism of Older Children and Confirmation

It is not uncommon for older children (not previously baptised and usually under 5 years of age) to be baptised at the same time as their new baby brother or sister. Indeed, none of the children have to be babies as it might be, for instance, that a family wishes to express their new found faith in this traditional act of Christian witness to family, friends and community. Baptism is an interim stage - awaiting the age where a young man or woman is ready to confirm that public affirmation of faith in Jesus Christ for themselves. Consequently, older children (who have not already been baptised) will often wait until they are ready to make their own declaration of faith in a Baptism Service, sometimes combined with a Confirmation Service, but more often than not a separate service on an occasion, before the Confirmation service. More information about Confirmation can be obtained via the Tiger Church Office on 01444 482405 or email

Adult Baptism and New Life

The birth of a new life is one of the most joyous occasions imaginable. Jesus taught that this joyous new birth can happen twice in our lives - once at our natural birth and once as a spiritual rebirth. If anything, this second birth is even more exciting than the first and, of course, a time of great celebration for the church family. An adult, who has not been baptised as a child, will often want to mark their new birth by an act of adult baptism, possibly at a Baptism and Confirmation Service or even by being baptised by total immersion! Please contact the Tiger Church Office or one of the clergy for more details. If, on reading this, you would like to know more about what Jesus had to say concerning spiritual rebirth, then please contact one of the clergy at All Saints, or why not consider one of the courses we run?

Who we are

All Saints is an anglican church with a strong evangelical tradition serving the parish of Lindfield in the Diocese of Chichester in West Sussex. 

Although we are a local church, we are also committed to supporting God's work further afield - through the Sussex Gospel Partnership and through our many mission partners who are involved in mission work in this country and across the world.

Hugh LeadingOur aim is to be a welcoming Christian community, embodying as well as proclaiming the gospel of God. 
Our belief as a church is grounded in the teaching of the Bible, the inspired Word of God. We joyfully acknowledge Jesus as our Saviour and try to follow him day-to-day as our Lord. We are not a perfect church, but we are trying, by God's grace, to grow in faith, hope and love each day. Our aim, therefore, is to be a disciple-making church, building up and growing mature followers of Christ who will be his witnesses in the world.
