Christenings

If you are thinking of having your child baptised (christened), we would be very pleased to help you arrange this.  We can either baptise your child during our morning worship at 10.30am, or arrange something later on a Sunday, for example we have often held a Christening service at 12.30pm. 

We normally like to come and visit the family to sort out the arrangements in their home to explain the importance of the service and provide further information.  If you would like further details, then please get in contact with Fr Jim Bennett on 01322 553421 or jdbbarnehurst@aol.com.

Baptism is a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that you are loved by God, are part of a wider community and have a place with God's people.
