The birth of a baby is a wonderful, life-changing and life-enhancing moment, which we rightly want to celebrate with our family and friends. Everyone is welcome to have their child christened in their parish church. Even if you no longer live in the parish but have a previous connection with us – maybe you were christened here yourself – you are welcome to return for your own baby to be christened. During the christening service your child will be baptised and, with the support of the church community, you and godparents, he or she begins an amazing journey of faith.
Baptism is not only a naming ceremony and a celebration. It is acceptance into the family and church of Christ and the start of a pilgrimage as a follower of Jesus. You are never too old to take this step, and we welcome people to join us on this wonderful journey.
