BAPTISM / CHRISTENING
We prefer to call it baptism as it is more than giving a child a Christian name. it is through baptism that we are welcomed into God's family - the Church. At a baptism parents, Godparents and everyone in the church is asked to make some really important promises that will help the child grow physically, emotionally and spiritually.
Will you so maintain the Church's life of worship that they may grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of God and of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord?
Generous God, touch us again with the fire of your Spirit and renew in us all the grace of our Baptism; that we may profess the one true faith and live in love and unity with all who are baptised into Christ.
