All churches are different and have different needs, buildings, budgets and ways of outreach. For some churches, a fixed pool in or above ground may not be appropriate or possible. We can make the large baptistry tanks on wheels, but this may not be portable enough.
A large portable baptistry pool that can be taken down and moved may be more to your needs, especially if you need flexibility with your church building. A lot of growing churches move and upsize buildings, or meet in several buildings across a neighbourhood.
These panel baptistries use a tough and hard-wearing form of GRP so that you are investing in a pool that will last many years. And equipment always lasts longer when it is in the care of one church looking after their pool.
The Apostle Flatpack Baptistry is the size of some of our permanent baptismals – at 210 cm across and 100cm deep, it is the capacity of one of our Compact Elim single piece baptistry tanks! These are strong pools built for longevity and strength. Each pool comprises 12 panels (the default is a warm cream colour but you can choose your colour form the RALcolor range) and these are bolted together between metal plates for additional strength. The pool comes with 2 liners for extra peace of mind. Again, the default is a mid-blue but patterns and colours are available.
Our show stopper, this is the pool with real stage presence for your bigger events – and, surprisingly, it still fits in most cars for transport! This pool has the capacity of one of our permanent walk-in fibreglass baptistry tanks but with all the flexibility and move-ability of a portable.
The Nonagon (9-sided) and Croydon (10-sided) Flatpack Baptistries are probably the most commonly used and requested of all our baptistries. These are the same hard-wearing pools we use for hire – wood effect GRP in range of colours. These are extremely tough and hard-wearing baptistry panels and they will go on for many years. Both combine spaciousness when assembled with compactness for storage and portability. The Nonagon is 180cm across and the Croydon, 210cm across, both are 77cm deep.
Our most popular baptistry combining a spacious design for your baptism with compact storage and easy set up.
The Flatpack Galilee is the newest of the Flatpack Baptistry range. It is 230cm long and 165cm wide and is designed to give the maximum length. As with Nonagon and the Croydon, it is 77cm deep. It consists of 14 panels and has the option of being supplied with 1x 0.5mm thick liner or 2x 0.35mm guage liners. This pool has the added advantage that if you take out the 2 straight centre panels, you have the Compact pool 170cm across which is ideal for venues where you need to set up and take down quickly or if you are baptising children (or need to save on water!). As with all these pools, you can choose the colour of the panels. And you are buying a very hard-wearing form of fibreglass that will last for many years.
A larger, flat-pack version of the popular old Galilee pool. An excellent alternative to the Apostle.
The Compact is a variation on the Flatpack Galilee because it uses 12 of the same panels to give a ’round’ pool with an internal diameter of 165cm and a depth of 77cm.
The Compact baptistry is ideal for small spaces, or where a pool needs to be set up and taken down quickly; it is quick to fill and heat. It can be used for adult baptism where the candidate kneels to be immersed.
