Baptisms

Baptisms are a way to express commitment to Christian faith as an adult, if you weren’t baptised as a child; or to bring a young child to join the church and express your intention to raise them in the Christian faith.  Baptisms take place within our Sunday services, and are normally booked several months in advance.

We also offer a Service of Thanksgiving, if you want to give thanks for the arrival of a new child, without making the promises of faith involved in a baptism.

(Baptism is the same as Christening, by the way, in case you were wondering!)

For more information, contact the parish office on halsteadparish@gmail.com or 01787 472171.

Top tip: If you're joining us for a baptism with a school-aged child, here's a fun worksheet you could download to bring with you to keep them entertained and help them understand what's going on!
