Thanksgiving services

If you do not feel able to make the commitments required for Baptism you may find a Thanksgiving service to be suitable for your child. This is a joyful celebration with family and friends to say “Thank you” to God and “name” your child publicly.

The service involves:

  • Lighting a candle and making a public commitment to care for your child
  • “Godparents” similar to a Baptism
  • Signing your child with the sign of the cross
  • Support and prayers of the church
  • A certificate to mark the occasion

Please come along to church on a Saturday morning between 9.30am and 10.30am if you would like more information about a Thanksgiving service
