Baptism and Thanksgiving for Children

If you would like to thank God for your child and be prayed for, please ask about a Thanksgiving. We can usually accommodate Thanksgiving requests relatively quickly.

We ask parents who live in the parish and wish to bring their child(ren) for Baptism to meet with us so that we can outline what is involved. We will explain that the promises made in Baptism are for believing Christians, and that being a Christian means following Jesus Christ in every area of life.

An essential part of the Christian life is belonging to a church and attending weekly; we find that it usually takes a few months to settle in to church life. Also, we regularly run courses like Christianity Explored to explain the basics of the Christian faith and encourage you to ask about these.
