Long Description:
The Baptismal Font is made of red sandstone and is set into the rear most of the windows on the south-side of the Church.

The inscription on the Font is in Manx Gaelic and reads:
'Ta un Chiarn, un Credjue, un Vashey, Un Jee as Ayr jeh ooilley'

This has been translated as:
'There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, One God and Father of all.'

This quote is taken form Ephesians 4:5 and part of 4:6.

The Font is decorated with a cross and was formerly painted blue and read.

The Font is of unknown antiquity as the origin of the Church itself.

The wooden lid is of much more modern origin.
