Baptism for babies and children are often called Christenings. In this service parents thank God for God’s gift of life, make a decision to start their child on a journey of faith and godparents promise help and support. The church also promises to welcome the child and to pray for the family.

For your child, being baptised at a Christening marks the start of a lifelong journey of faith as part of the local and worldwide Christian family.
