A Christening (or Baptism) is for those who understand the huge promises that parents and godparents are required to make for those who are not yet old enough to make these promises for themselves.
As a parent, you are making the promise to bring your child up in the Christian faith, until they are old enough to make that decision for themselves.
We usually hold Christenings on the third Sunday of the month after our services, usually around 12:15pm.
For families that do not regularly attend St Mary's Hitcham, we like to meet with you to discuss what is right for you and your child and then ask you to attend a preparation session.
If you would like to enquire about getting Christened at St Mary's Hitcham, please contact us.
