Christenings & Baptisms at Gawsworth Church
At a christening, or baptism, we mark and celebrate new life, either in a baby whose life is just beginning, or in a child or adult who wants to begin a new life with Christ, as part of the family of God. It is the start of an amazing journey of faith.
If you do not live within Gawsworth Parish, all enquiries about baptism should initially be directed to your local Parish Church. Please do this using the contact form below.
This local link is important for continuing pastoral contact after baptism. We do recognise that in certain circumstances, for instance a close family connection, you may wish your or your child’s baptism to take place at St. James the Great, and we’re very happy to discuss this.
If you have an enquiry about baptism, please contact the Rector. The Church of England has put together some helpful information on what christening/baptism means and what happens at the service.
