Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child

The birth or adoption of a child is a cause for celebration. Many people are overcome by a sense of awe at the creation of new life and want to express their thanks to God. This service provides an opportunity for parents and families to give thanks for the birth or adoption of a child and to pray for family life. 

During this time of lockdown, this service is offered by Zoom, as a private celebration in your home, linking up with your immediate family and friends. Please do be in contact to find out more.  

This service is not the same as Baptism (also called Christening), which is the sacrament of initiation into membership of the Church, the Body of Christ. If you are interested in exploring the Christian faith, or hearing about preparation for Baptism, please do be in touch.
