BAPTISMS  (aka Christenings)

We welcome people who want to have their  child Baptised

It may be you have chosen  to  worship with us and come regularly. If you don’t live in our parish we can help guide you to  your own parish church.

How do I arrange a Baptism?
Baptisms usually happen in the  10:15  Sunday service by arrangement. We begin the preparation on a Sunday as soon as you can come for short 2 min service of thanksgiving and blessing during any  10:15 service. We then arrange preparation visits and set a date once everything is in order.  You will need to contact us to arrange a date to start, and you will need to fill out a simple form, giving details of your child’s name(s), the parents and the godparents etc.

Baptism is the beginning of a person’s lifelong journey with God.  When a young child is baptised, the Parents and Godparents say the vows on behalf of the child, and also for themselves.  There are questions they answer to commit to bringing up the  child  as a member of the church.  It is important that the answers they give to these questions are about their own faith, as well as the faith they are hoping for the child.

How much does it cost?  There is no cost for the service- God’s grace is freely given  – but for soming we realise is  beyond value   we  would naturally  respond with  thanks tangibly  to   bless and finance our  church as  part of our christian commitment.  Making the promises recomits us all to  provide for the running of the church. A generous family  donation shows  that teh Grace of God has been  relaly taken to heart , and this is the first evidence of us taking our childrens baptsim into our hearts  seriously.
