Baptism and Blessings are all part of the rituals the church offers to celebrate a child’s life. Becoming a parent is an exciting and daunting time. Families requesting baptism, or a blessing want to thank God for the gift of their child and acknowledge their responsibilities in raising their child.
The church is a place you can come to celebrate your child and your family—whatever shape your family takes. The services include a variety of promises made by the parents and others to the child. They include prayers for the family and the child.
Blessings and baptisms [sometimes called christening] for children, and baptisms for adults, are available after a discussion with the minister. They take place within the Sunday service at a date arranged by the families and the minister. We will be very happy to help you celebrate your child’s life in either a baptism or a blessing.
