Baptism

Congratulations on the gift of a child!

The service of Baptism – or christening – is a lovely occasion and brings gerat joy to the couple and congregation.  It also involves responsibilities because parents promise to follow Christ, repent of their sins, renounce evil and bring up their child in public worship.  There is no better way to start a child’s life.

Preparation

Parents, contact the vicar, who will help you to make arrangments, and fix a date to suit you.  He will try to answer your questions, and help you make the day as happy and meaningful as it should be.

Payment

No fees need to be paid to the church or the minister at any time.

Godparents

Godparents normally include two people of the same sex as the child, and one of the opposite sex, although it is all right to have more than three.

The Service

Baptism services normally last one hour. Coffee is served afterwards.
