Start an amazing journey
Christening (or baptism) marks the beginning of an amazing journey of faith for yourself or your child and a special day for all your friends and family. There is no age limit to being baptised into the church.
One of the first things you will need to do is be in touch with your local church and speak to one of the ministry team or Rev’d Ruth Colby who will always be delighted to hear from you.
Godparents are really special not just on the day itself when the child is baptised but for the child’s life even when they are grown up themselves. It is a lifelong commitment Baptisms can take place as part of the usual Sunday service or by special arrangement at another time to suit you and your family. When choosing Godparents they will need to have been christened themselves, however, if they haven't been christened contact us as there may be other ways they can be involved.
As an alternative it is also possible to have a ceremony of thanksgiving or blessing following the birth of a child. Remember anyone can be baptised and at any age.
