Baptism

Below are details for Baptism (also known as Christening for babies and young children), and Thanksgiving services, with links to web sites you may find useful.  In the first instance, please contact the Vicar to make the arrangements, a member of our pastoral team will then get in touch with you.

Christenings for children

FontEveryone is welcome to have their children christened at Christ Church. During the christening service your child will be baptized and with the support of the church, you 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 here. It also includes information about another church service to say thank you for God for your baby.



Adult baptism

Sometimes, seeing someone else baptized, deciding to have your own child baptized or being asked to be a godparent, can make you to think about your own journey of faith. If you were not baptized as a young child, you may be deciding now as an adult or teenager to make this commitment.
Whatever led you to this point, baptism marks the beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of our lives.  Read more here about being baptized as an adult.
