Christenings

Anyone can get in touch to find out about having their child christened.

It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.

We love helping families to celebrate their children by having them baptised with water at a christening here at Leatherhead Parish Church.

However, we recognise that for some parents and carers making promises that commit them to faith is not always possible.

Therefore, we also offer a service of thanksgiving, that simply provides an opportunity for you and your invited guests to thank God for the gift of your child.

For either type of service, please contact the Parish Office where Margaret and Jane will be happy to help you get started.

Margaret will contact you and discuss details, after which Rev’d Graham or Ian will come and visit you and your family.

Our Children and Families Development Worker, Holly, will also probably come for a cup of tea to get to know you. 

Once the date is confirmed we ask you to join a two hour session called ‘We Welcome You’ with other parents/carers to discuss and explore what a christening or thanksgiving service is and what we offer as a church.

Then it’s the big day!
