Life Events - celebrations in faith
A Guide to Blessings and Baptism
in the churches of the Harrowdens, Orlingbury, Isham and Pytchley
The birth or adoption of a child is a cause of great celebration. Many people are overcome by a sense of awe at the creation of new life and want to express their thanks to God.
At your local parish church we would like to join in your celebraitons by offering you a choice of services for your child - including a Blessing at home, Thanksgiving in Church and the service of Baptism.
Please download and read this short booklet to explain what is on offer to you
After that your next step is to speak with Revd Mary Ireland and chat over which celebration will be best for you and then sort out the details with her.
We will be delighted to welcome you.
