Baptisms and Thanksgivings

Welcome to the beginning of an amazing journey

Your child is precious to you and to God. You want the very best for them, and we believe that making these big choices about faith as a family is one of the best things you will ever do.

As a local church we are committed to walking this journey with you each and every step of the way. We’re really pleased to help you think about having a baptism (also called christening), or a service thanksgiving, for your child.

As a first step we ask you to take a look at this video, which will help you think about some of the different options open to you. We love doing thanksgiving and baptism services, and we really look forward to exploring further with you.

We’d then invite you to come and meet one of the team at the Church. We’ve love to sit down together, talk about some of the different options available to you and your family, and how we can best support you in this journey of faith. There are lots of different ways in which we help families get ready for a baptism or a thanksgiving, including our “baptism preparation evenings”, Messy Church, Toddler Groups, and coming to church on a Sunday.
