Christening (also called baptism) is a traditional way to welcome your child into the life of the church and the community.
This page is particularly thinking about christenings for infants and young children. (But you can be baptised at any age, and we always love to hear from adults and older children who would like to consider Christian baptism. Please use the form on this page to get in touch.)
Why do people choose to have a baby christened? Some common reasons include
- It’s the traditional way to welcome a child into the church and community
- It’s an expression of lifelong love and commitment to your child
- It’s a step on your own spiritual journey that you want to share
It’s usual to make the baptism part of a regular Sunday service, and you can be sure of a warm welcome. Whether this is a step you’ve chosen to take, or if you would just like to find out more, please use this form to give a few details, and we’ll be happy to get in touch!
