If you would like to thank God for your child and be prayed for, please ask about a Thanksgiving. We can usually accommodate Thanksgiving requests relatively quickly. No Godparents are required, and you would not be asked to make any promises on behalf of your child. This service is particularly suitable if you are not a practicing Christian, but would like to give thanks to God nonetheless for your child, and to ask for his blessing.
All those who would like to explore baptism for themselves, or for their child, will be asked to complete our Baptism Preparation Course. The baptism course gives people the opportunity to ask questions about Christianity, who God is, to talk about what Baptism is for, and for us to explain the promises made at Baptism. The Baptism Course runs over two weeks, with each session lasting around 45 minutes to an hour. The course also gives the opportunity to discuss baptism with others who are also seeking baptism, and is held in an informal and relaxed environment, with coffee and tea provided!
Several courses run throughout the year, and are held on Saturday mornings at 10.30am.
This year the course dates are:
14th and 21st March
2nd and 9th May
6th and 13th June
4th and 11th July
1st and 8th August
5th and 12th September (subject to change)
3rd and 10th October
7th and 14th November
As we only have a small team, unfortunately we are not able to offer any other dates or times for baptism courses.
