Arrange a Baptism
The birth of a baby is an event which touches us in a special way. Many people wish to give thanks to God for the gift of a child and this can be done in one of two ways.
In Baptism the child is made a member of the Church and the parents commit themselves to bringing him/her up as a Christian. This includes teaching them to pray, reading the Bible with them, and bringing them to church services. There is a formal turning away from evil and a turning towards Christ as Saviour and Lord.
For those who are not ready to make such a commitment, we can celebrate instead with a Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child. In this short service, we give thanks for the child, ask God to bless her/him, pray for the parents and name the child.
Do contact our Vicar, Noelle Taylor if you would like further information.
