Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish Church. During the christening service your child will be baptised and with the support of the church, you and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith. All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on: churchofenglandchristenings.org.
It also includes information about another church service to say thank you for God for your baby.
Sometimes, seeing someone else baptised, deciding to have your own child baptised or being asked to be a godparent, can make you to think about your own journey of faith. If you were not baptised as a young child, you may be deciding now as an adult or teenager to make this commitment. Whatever led you to this point, baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives. Read more about being baptized as an adult.
If you would like to be baptised or to hold a baptism at one of our beautiful Churches please get in touch via the Parish Office.
