Christening

 

A Christening, also known as Baptism, marks the beginning of the Christian journey.

 

If you are interested in being baptised or would like to bring your child to Church for a Christening we are glad to help you.

 

Please contact the vicar, Matthew Carlisle, to make further arrangements.

 

If you want to know more about Baptism, this website has lots of useful information.

 

What is a Christening?

 

Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make right choices in life, for themselves and for others.

 

A christening is just the beginning of this and so much more.

 

Over the years to come, it’s a journey you’ll share together with your child by:

  • Being there for your child to talk to about the bigger questions of life – questions about hope, faith and love.

  • Praying for your child through the ups and downs of their faith journey.

  • Showing them practically how to make those good choices in life.

  • Helping them to learn more about their Christian faith, through their church and in other ways.

 

So it’s a commitment to start as you mean to go on.
