Baptisms

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 contact the parish office; you will be visited by baptism co-ordinator Marianne Francis, and an appointment will be arranged with the vicar to discuss details.

Baptism is for adults too – anyone can be welcomed into God’s family, whatever their age.
