Welcoming children and adults into the fulness of life as a Christian at All Saints is a wonderful and great celebration. It’s far more than a good excuse for a party, and it is not a naming ceremony. It is about you or your child receiving the fulness of life in this world, and everlasting life in the next, thanks to Jesus.
It’s really important, then, to think who would make good Godparents, and why you are doing this. Who is most likely to bring your child up in this faith and teach them what is really important in this life, and for the next. You might also want to ask: why do I want my child to be baptised at church? What does Jesus Christ, what does God, mean to me? How will I involve my child in church? Why are we doing this
Most baptisms happen here during the main Sunday Eucharist which gives the congregation a chance to welcome the person into the life of the Church. The Vicar will visit you and introduce what baptism is about, and talk a little about the awesome promises you will have to make as a parent or Godparent.
If you would like to find out about the possibility of a Baptism/Christening at All Saints, please contact Fr Gregory, the Vicar, who will be delighted to discuss options with you.
