Christening or Baptism

First steps on an amazing journey

Covid-19 Update for Christenings or Baptisms:

In light of the current restrictions in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, the building of Christ Church is closed for Sunday worship which sadly means christenings and baptisms are unable to take place in Christ Church for the time being.

Emergency baptisms can take place in a hospital or at home, however this is subject to strict hygiene precautions and physical distancing as far as this is possible.

Christening or Baptism is a visible sign of God’s love for us. In baptism, we thank God for his gift of life and publicly acknowledge his love. It marks a new start: a decision to follow Jesus Christ within the family of the Church.

At Christ Church, we welcome babies, children and adults to take this important step in their journey of Christian faith. Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ.
