Steve and Rachel Smith brought baby Evan to be baptised. A very special moment in her life and she slept like a baby.

Baptism for babies, children and adults takes place in a service which people often call a Christening.

When parents bring their baby or child to be baptised, they thank God for his gift of life and make a commitment to start their child on a journey of faith. They also choose godparents, who promise to help and support them and their child on this journey. For your child, being baptised at their Christening marks the start of a lifelong journey of faith and a welcome into the local and worldwide Christian family.

If you would like to know more about Christening then please get in touch with our parish administrator on 332017 on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday afternoons (there is an answer machine at other times) or by email:
