For children and adults alike being Baptised at a Christening marks the start of a lifelong journey of faith as part of the local and worldwide Christian family.

A Thanksgiving service is the perfect alternative to a baptism for parents who want to celebrate the gift of a child without the commitment that baptism involves. There are no promises to make about the Christian faith in a Thanksgiving service. Some families choose to do this so that their child can make the decision to be baptised into the Christian faith when they are older.
