Christenings Baptism and Thanksgiving
Baptism marks the start of the journey of faith as someone becomes a Christian and joins the family of the Church.
Christening is the service that usually involves baptising with water, but there is also a more simple service of thanksgiving too. There are more details below and on the new Church of England Christenings website. Do make contact with our vicar, the Revd Mark Rodel to see which may be right for you. Call Mark on 07590 208803 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Christenings usually take place at our First Sunday service. If you prefer a more traditional setting, you can have a baptism at St Edmund’s Church at Holme Pierrepont.
Baptism marks the start of the journey of faith as someone becomes a Christian and joins the family of the Church. Children and adults can be baptised; both make promises about the commitment they are making to follow Christ. Parents and godparents make those promises on behalf of the youngest children.
Thanksgiving is a service of saying thank you to God for the gift of a child. It can come before baptism or instead of baptism if you don’t yet feel ready to make a full Christian commitment on behalf of your child.
