Dear Parents,

Welcome!  We are delighted that you are thinking about a Christening or Thanksgiving Service for your child at St Anne’s. We want to help you as you make these important decisions for your family so here are some helpful things to watch or read.

After you have had chance to look through these resources, if you would like to book a Christening service for your child, then please come along to one of our All Age Services.  These are short family friendly services on the 1st Sunday of the month.  They start at 10.15 and last for about an hour.  After the service a member of the Exploring Christening Team will be available to talk to you over a cuppa to arrange a date for the Christening and a date for a visit from the minister who will be taking the service.

Thanks for your interest

With all best wishes

Revd Richard Westwood
Team Vicar
