Church of England Diocese of Durham Gateshead Fell

Christenings

Christening (Baptism) The special service where we welcome new Christians into the church family and thank God for them. Both adults and children can be baptised. Adults will make their own promises to God.

Parents and Godparents of children who are not old enough to make those promises for themselves, make the promises on their child’s behalf.

If you want to know more come along to our weekly Sunday 9.15am service.

Danie or Ken will have a chat with you after the service and make a booking.

Baptism is an important event, so preparation is important, and we will meet with you to explain the service and its implications.

You and your family are very welcome at St John’s Church and we hope that you will want to become part of our Church family.
