Thinking about A Christening for your child?

Everyone is welcome to have their children Christened in their parish church.  This normally takes place during the main morning service, when your child will be baptised.   With the support of the church, parents and godparents, your child begins an amazing journey of faith.  All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on

Thinking about a Thanksgiving Service?

A special church service, different from a christening, can be used as a way to say ‘Thank you’ to God for your child.  It is called a Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child.  This is a lovely time when you can be with friends and family, ask for God’s blessing and pray for your baby.  It’s possible to have this service instead of a christening if you decide that now isn’t the right time to have your child baptised.
