Copyright St Lukes Church, Winton, 2011 Christenings Christenings The birth of a baby is a wonderful thing and everyone wants to celebrate. Your child is really special and we believe that all children are a gift from God. St John’s is your church, and we would be honoured if you would like to share this time and we are very happy to help you. Many people want to mark this with a special event - and Baptism (sometimes called Christening) is one of the ways which many people think of straight away. At St John’s we aim to make the service appropriate to your needs and personal to you and your family and friends. Baptisms at St John’s are held on the first Sunday of the month at 11:30am, although this can be different some months. Please bear this in mind when asking for a date and have several options in mind – the vicar can let you know when there are available times. There is a simple order of service which helps everyone present to celebrate your child and all the promise and potential they have and to express your love and care for their future – spiritual and practical. Please use our details on the contact page to get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you and celebrating with you.
