Baptism or Thanksgiving for the birth of a child
The birth of a child is a wonderful event – if you would like to seek God’s blessing for the new member of your family, St Andrew’s can provide a Baptism (sometimes also called a Christening) or a Thanksgiving Service. This takes place during certain of our Sunday morning services, so that the whole church family can make a commitment to support the child as he or she grows up within the community of faith.
To find out more about baptism at St Andrew’s, please see our Baptism and Thanksgiving Policy.
Baptism is for adults too – anyone can be welcomed into God’s family, whatever their age.
For further information see the Church of England ‘Guide to Christenings’.
