REPORTS FOR THE
ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING

Baptism/Thanksgiving

Please contact 01322 336505 or email Office

Baptism

Baptism is something we are commanded to do by Jesus, as part of someone coming to faith on their discipleship journey. 

Thanksgiving

A thanksgiving service may take place at any time convenient to the family and the minister taking the service. It may, if wished, take place during a main Sunday service.

Thanksgivings for children are becoming increasingly common. They happen for a number of reasons that include:

-Families who would prefer to wait until their children can make a decision about baptism and faith for themselves.

-Those who feel unable to make the promises required within the baptism service but would still want to thank God for the arrival of their baby.

-Those for whom the focus is on the child rather than the Christian faith, but who would like an initiation or naming ceremony.

- Those who would like a separate service for their child outside of Sunday worship.
