The birth of a child is always a wonderful privilege - and a great responsibility. So it's very natural to want to give thanks to God for one of the greatest gifts he has ever given you, and to ask for his blessing on your child and your family and we will be delighted to arrange a service for your child.
Things have changed a little in the Church since we were children ourselves. Parents now have two options.
You can choose to have a Thanksgiving Service only for your child or alternatively, a Thanksgiving Service, followed some weeks later by a Baptism Service.
Every child, therefore, has a Thanksgiving Service. Some families choose to have a Baptism as well; other families feel that the Thanksgiving alone is more suitable for them.
COMING TO CHURCH
We strongly encourage you to come as a family to Church, as often as you can over the next weeks.
Thanksgivings take place at any time by arrangement.
Baptisms are always part of ordinary Sunday services.
Many families start coming to Church regularly after the birth of a child because they know they will need God's help in caring for their new family
