bullet Christenings at our church normally take place during the main 10am Sunday service but we can discuss other times and days if that would help. Noon on Sunday often works well. There wouldn’t normally be music at other times but Matt our organist would be pleased to play at noon for a fee of £50.
bullet We offer you an opportunity to talk through the issues involved and look at the service. This usually involves two visits: one from Patrick to discuss the service and one from a lay person to answer any general queries.
bullet Follow-up visits, to encourage and support the new church members and their families, are made by existing church members.
bullet If you are interested in having your child christened you might also be interested in Tots Teatime Church, a relaxed, informal service for under-fives with a Bible story, craft, music and refreshments. It meets at 3.30pm at Christ Church on the second Sunday of the month (except December). Please get in touch with Patrick for more details.
