Christenings

Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church, and we would love to meet you if you would like to have your child christened/baptised at St John the Baptist. The christening is usually part of a main Sunday service but it is also possible to arrange, at a different time, a special service.

All you need to know about planning and going to a Church of England christening can be found on: churchofenglandchristenings.org. It also includes information about another church service to say thank you to god for your child. It’s possible to have this service instead of a christening if you decide that now isn’t the right time to have your child baptized.

You might also choose this service when your baby is just born, or if you have adopted a child into your family and you simply want to celebrate this with special words said by a vicar in church.

Whatever the reason, your vicar will be delighted to talk to you about this service: https://churchofenglandchristenings.org/for-parents/thanksgiving-service.
