Christenings and Baptisms


Christenings in the Box River Benefice

If you are looking at this page, you may be thinking about a Christening (Baptism) for yourself or one of your children.  If so, we’re delighted that you’ve made it this far and we look forward to welcoming you in the Box River Benefice.  Our churches offer baptism to everyone and we aim to make it a welcoming, rewarding and memorable experience.

A big part of the richness of Baptism includes entry into the Church community, with the community of faith present to welcome the newly baptised. As such, we are able to offer baptism at any of our usual Sunday morning services.

Things people have had to say following their Baptism

“I would like to say a very big thank you for X‘s  baptism ceremony, he was extremely happy. He keeps talking about this day. Also he received your letter addressed to him and he was so exited about his baptism certificate and the other little things. Thank you once again. Soon we will visit  the church again.” Ms S, Sept 2021

“Thank you very much for your service on Sunday – we all really enjoyed it and were really pleased with how everything went! You made it so meaningful and straightforward.” Mrs P, Sept 2021

“Thank you for making our son’s baptism such a memorable experience. You made us feel so welcome and upbeat explaining everything to us beforehand, what would happen and talk us through the service. Once we arrived we were made to feel so welcome. Even though you caught COVID the day before you bent over backwards to find another priest who was really lovely.” Ms S, July 2021

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all you did to make X’s baptism so memorable and rich on Sunday. You were right, it was wonderful to have the whole church community present to make the service even more lively and you delivered it with such depth and yet made it enjoyable and engaging. Thank you for all you did for us.” Ms B, Nov 2019

“Thank you for a wonderful service on Sunday. It was terrific. We are so pleased that our daughter is starting off life with such a spiritual blessing!” Mrs P, Nov 2019
