At Christenings (also called Baptisms) three things happen:

The Church of England has developed a useful website that tells you all you need to know about Christenings. The Light a Candle feature lets you light a virtual candle and pray for the child who is being christened.
We conduct baptisms at noon on certain Sundays throughout the year. The service lasts 30 minutes and usually involves 2 or 3 families. Occasionally we also baptise during our 10am Parish Communion, especially if the family are regular members of the congregation.
Before your child's baptism, we will invite you to attend a baptism preparation evening, together with other parents. Led by the Clergy and Parish Visiting Team, these sessions cover what is involved in your child's baptism and offer the opportunity to discuss what it means to be baptised.
