Baptisms (Christening)


A christening is the first step of an amazing journey with God,

parents, godparents, friends, family and the church.

A lifetime of discovering more about love, faith and hope begins, 

a wonderful moment to celebrate.

 


 


WHAT HAPPENS AT A CHRISTENING ?
 

At a christening your child will be baptized with water. This is the heart of your child's christening.

There are several special moments in the service:

You are invited to make the initial booking at our parish office at the church on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of any month from
7.00pm-8.00pm. 

 

A couple should allow at least three months between attending the Parish Office and the proposed date of the Baptism.
 

Those booking a baptism will be invited to take part in a baptsm preparation evening, before the baptism.
 

Following the baptism, candidates are encouraged to return to church on the first Sunday of the month after the baptism at the 10am "Worship For All" service and can be accompanied by the godparents and family.

At this service, baptism candidates are welcomed by the congregation and receive the baptism certificate and candle.
