A child is a precious gift and we'd love to celebrate with you as we welcome you and your family to St Giles the Abbot Church in Cheadle. 

At a Christening, your child is baptised and becomes part of the wider church family as well as your own. Being a parent isn't always easy and we'd love to help and encourage you - not just for the Christening day itself but as your child grows and as we make a journey of faith together. 

We are always glad to meet with families to discuss a Christening. The best way to start the process is by us welcoming you to a Sunday service. which we hold at 10h30. 

You will find a link below to the Baptism Policy for the Parish which explains the procedure we follow; we look forward to exploring your child's baptism with you further when we meet.

Baptism marks the start of a child's amazing faith journey though life. You can find out more here including a handy step by step guide of exactly what happens and a useful link to send to your godparents.
