What is a Christening?

​ During a christening, your child will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family. Follow the links to find answers to your questions and to explore all that a christening means, not just on the day, but long afterward.

EXPLORING MORE ABOUT WHAT A CHRISTENING MEANS

Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make the right choices in life, for themselves and for others.

A christening is just the beginning of this and so much more.

Over the years to come, it’s a journey you’ll share together with your child by:

Being there for your child to talk to about the bigger questions of life questions about hope, faith, and love.

Praying for your child through the ups and downs of their faith journey.

Showing them practically how to make those good choices in life.

Helping them to learn more about their Christian faith, through their church and in other ways.

So it’s a commitment to start as you mean to go on. What to do next?

To discuss a Christening at any of the Masham Group of Churches, please feel free to call Canon David Cleeves.
