Baptism and Blessing Services

We really enjoy Christenings or Baptisms at all of the churches in the Benefice. Both terms have the same meaning, and involve a special ceremony welcoming someone new into the church family. This is a really lovely thing for us to be involved in, as we believe that all people are special to God.

At our Baptism not only do we join a community, we also begin a life long journey of faith. Adults can speak for themselves, but babies and children need parents and godparents to speak for them. The good thing is that in joining our community you’re not on your own. We’re here to help.

Baptisms usually happen during our Sunday morning services, and your first port of call should be Karen at the Benefice Office. She will let you know service times and answer any questions you may have. She’ll take some details and guide you through the next steps. Although unable to guarantee a specific date, if you have something in mind we will try our best to accommodate.

We are also more than happy to discuss a thanksgiving service to celebrate your new arrival, if that’s what you’d prefer.
