We are always delighted to welcome new people, whatever their age, into the life of the Church. Baptism, (or Christening), is the way in which we become part of the Christian family. At one and the same time, it is a profound sharing in the death and Resurrection of Jesus and a joyful awesome affirmation of God’s love for each one of us.
Every single person is wonderfully unique, and loved by God, just as they are. A service of Baptism is a great opportunity for us all to be reminded of this.
And, you are never too old. No one need feel they have missed out. So, if you have not been Baptised yourself and would like to consider it, please do contact The Revd. Canon Moira Wickens on: 01243 920346, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, to have a chat about and make the necessary arrangements.
If you are looking at this page because you have a new son or daughter, and would like to have them Baptised, congratulations on their birth, or even if your child is a bit older, please do contact Moira so as to make the necessary arrangements.
All you need to do, is to have a chat about baptism, fill in the necessary form and decide on a date and time that works for both you and Moira.
If it is possible Baptisms will take place within the main Sunday service, so that the regular congregation can welcome the new member of God’s family. But this is not always practical or easy, given that many family members live some distance away. So a service, usually at 12noon is another option for you to consider.
There is absolutely no charge for this service, for it is in fact an expression of God’s free and unlimited grace and love, offered to all.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any further questions, Moira will be only too happy to answer them, and will do her best to make the service a relaxed, happy occasion for you, your family and your friends.
Baptism, The greatest gift we receive. For it is much more than a beginning, it is in fact a living reality, the meaning of which is discovered at each stage of our lives.
