Baptisms and Christenings

The birth of a child is the most awesome and life-changing experience. In baptism (or Christening) a child begins their journey of faith. With parents, godparents, family, church family and friends we celebrate your child’s safe arrival. In the words of the service, we commit ourselves to helping them to ‘explore the way of Jesus, grow in friendship with God, in love for his people and in serving others.’

Not every family wants to make a commitment to this kind of upbringing for their child but wishes to simply thank God for their child’s safe arrival and seek God’s blessing. A service of thanksgiving is designed for just this.
