Often we call Baptism “Christening”. The word Christening links with “Christ” - it means “anointed” . Being christened or baptised is about becominglike Jesus: someone with love, forgiveness, hope, joy. God’s Holy Spirit promises to help us be like that for ourselves, our families and for other people. In Jesus God defeats evil and helps us work to build a community of love and care for all the world. We call that community the Church.
We seek to serve everyone in the parish regardless of where you are on the “faith spectrum”. Our priest will visit you at least once in your home and ensure that the Service is as you wish it to be. Many find it helpful to have everything at Church and for the Vicar to accompany the departed to the crematorium or cemetery so that all can meet straight away to share memories and offer support to the bereaved. Another helpful service can be for your loved departed to be receieved into Church the evening before. This allows the immediate family a time of private reflection and prayer, unrestricted by time.
