Having a child is a very special time in any family's life.
At a service of baptism (which is also called a Christening) the child is welcomed into the life of the Church. Baptisms of babies and children currently take place in special services held at 12.30.
At this service parents and godparents thank God for the gift of the child, and and promise to both set a Christian example for their family, and bring up their children in the Christian faith.
This is a beautiful service in which everyone is made to feel very welcome. Children are encouraged to take a full part in the service.
If you would like to arrange for a christening please contact the Deanery Administrator, Mrs Caz Dennis, on 01406 423460 9am to 1pm Monday to Thursday.
