Christenings and Confirmations

Organising a christening – a parent’s guide

Priest pours water from an ornate polished brass jug into a baptism font, surrounded by parents and children.
During a christening service your child will be baptized with water. It's your child’s first step on an amazing journey of faith with God, you, the godparents, friends, family and the Church. 

As a parent, you don't have to have been christened yourself, and you don't have to have been a regular churchgoer. These three pages on the Church of England website will help you think everything through and start planning:-

Being baptised as an adult

You’re never too old to be baptized and begin an amazing journey of faith with family, friends and your Church. For more about being baptized as an adult, visit these helpful pages on the Church of England website. 

Being confirmed

If you’re considering being confirmed in the Church of England, your local church will be delighted to hear from you! 

All you need to do is get in touch with the vicar of your parish church and they will be happy to meet with you to discuss everything that a confirmation entails.
