|Christenings / Baptisms
a Christening your child will be baptized with water. Itís the start of
an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all
your friends and family. It is a response to God's love - a desire and
a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus
Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family
and friends; remembering that your child is loved by God, is part of a
wider community and has a place with God's people.

shortly before, or at the same time, as confirmation. Confirmation is
the service when those who have previously been baptized affirm those
promises and are specially prayed for by a Bishop.
