Thanksgiving for a life of your child

This is an ideal service for those who just want to say thank you to God for the life of their child but remain uncertain about the Christian faith or bringing up their children in the Christian faith. The birth or adoption of a child is a cause for celebration. Many people are overcome by a sense of awe at the creation of new life and want to express their thanks to God.

This service provides an opportunity for parents and families to give thanks for the birth or adoption of a child and to pray for family life. It may be a private celebration at home or in hospital, or it may be a public celebration in church, sometimes with a number of children. This service is not the same as Baptism (sometimes called Christening), which is the sacrament of initiation into membership of the Church, the Body of Christ.

If you wish to find out more about this service then please just come along to the parish office opening hours every Monday (during term time) from 6pm - 7 pm.
