Photographing a baptism ...

Good Day all

I have been asked to take photographs at the baptism of a friend's child. They assure me that photographs in church are permitted but I have requested that they specifically verify with the priest.

My questions on which I would appreciate advice from the boffins on here are:

(i) which of my lenses should I use. I don't wish to be changing lenses or swopping cameras because I won't have an assistant to hold (or secure) things for me.

(ii) what should be my minimum aperture, bearing in mind this is indoors but I need to have everyone around the church font in focus. I don't want to use a flash.

I am very much an amateur but have access to some nice Olympus lenses. I think the 12-40 PRO will be the best to use, but I have access to 45mm f/1.8, 75mm f/1.8, and 40-150PRO. I will be using an OMD EM-1 version 1.

I live in the Southern Hemisphere so if it doesn't rain it should be a reasonably bright day.

Thank you in advance for your advice.
