At St Paul’s we offer a warm welcome to anyone wanting to explore baptism. We baptise people of all ages and backgrounds, because we see everyone as Children of God, loved and welcomed into the Church family.
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. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and all those involved in their life.
Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child Service:
This service is different to a traditional baptism. It is designed to meet the needs of parents who see this as either a preliminary to baptism; or may not wish their child to be baptised immediately, or do not want a baptism but recognise that something has happened for which they wish to give thanks to God.
There are two ways for you to arrange a Christening or if you have any questions regarding a Christening. Please contact Jayne Weatherill either:
- by telephoning the Parish Office to arrange a meeting;
- emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and attach a completed Baptism Application Form with your preferred dates.
Please do not make any other arrangements until we have contacted you to confirm the date of your baptism service and the time.
