In baptism (sometimes called ‘Christening’), parents thank God for his gift of life,
make a decision to start the child on the journey of faith and ask for the Church's
support. Because the Church believes that God's love is available to all, so anyone
can have their child baptised regardless of their background.
Your parish priest can talk you through the options: for instance you might prefer
to have a Thanksgiving / naming service first and then consider baptism when you
have had time to ponder and pray things through.
You can discuss your baptism requirements by contacting Reverend Vivienne Hatton
on 01642 958686
We're delighted you're thinking of baptism for your child. Your child is precious
to you and precious to God. At baptism you promise to raise your child to know God
loves them, and to help them to follow Jesus as a member of the Church.
