CHRISTENINGS AT ST JOHN'S CHURCH, DONISTHORPE

   Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make the right choices for themselves and others.

   A Christening is just the beginning of this and so much more……

   At a Christening, your child will be baptized. It’s the first step of an amazing journey with God, parents, godparents, friends, family and the church. A lifetime of discovering more about love, faith and hope begins – a wonderful moment to celebrate.

Did you know?

o       You can have your child christened regardless of whether or not you are christened yourself.

o       You can talk to Vivien Elphick (our Team Rector) about having a christening, whether or not you have been a regular churchgoer

      Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in their parish church.  There are around 10,000 babies and children baptized in the Church of England every month. We also welcome adults who want to be baptized.

     At a Christening you make a decision to start your child on a journey of faith. The church and the godparents support the family and the child in this decision.
