Christenings and Baptisms

Baptism or Christening for your child

Many parents choose to bring their child to church to be christened or baptised. This recognises several important parts of an individual's life. It is a sign of God's love for us as part of His creation. Parents and godparents bringing a child to be baptised are publicly thanking God for the gift of life, deciding to help their child start a journey of faith, committing to guiding the child until they can make their own decision about faith, and asking God and the church for support. 

The church also has a special blessing service that offers thanks for the gift of the child, which is suitable for those who do not, at this stage, wish their child to be baptised. 

If you want to arrange a baptism or a blessing for your child, then you need to contact your local church and discuss arrangements with them.  Either attend a Sunday service and speak to someone afterwards, or get in touch via our contact page for advice. 

Adult Baptism

Baptism is not just for children. Many adults who have not been baptised as children want to make a commitment to God later in their life. Please contact us if you would like to explore this further with your local church.
