Thanksgiving for a child

This special service to mark the birth of a child includes a welcome and special prayers for the child and parents. Families may choose to have sponsors for the their child playing a similar role to godparents. Children still have the option, as they grow into faith,  to take the step of Baptism themselves and make their own declarations of faith as an adult.

The church will still give support and keep in touch with families who opt for this alternative service in the same way as those who are baptised inviting them to special events through the church year as well as regular services and social occasions.

If you would like to have a thanksgiving service for your child, in the first instance contact the vicar
