A child is a wonderful gift from God and it’s right that we want to celebrate such a fantastic present. The Church of England offers two services to help you celebrate the life of your child. Both involve recognising that God has created a new life, but the difference between the two is how much of a commitment you are prepared to make to the Christian faith.

We see our role as being to explain what each service means and to help you decide, with integrity, which service is the most appropriate for you and your child.

In the first instance please pop along to church and have a chat with us about whether baptism (Christening) or thanksgiving is best for you.
