During a christening your child will be baptized with water. It is the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for your friends and family.
When a person is christened, they are welcomed into the family of the church. It also marks the start of a lifetime of discovery about the Christian faith and how life-changing that can be. It’s a journey of surprises, challenges, and adventure. And through it all, God is always with us.
The Church of England welcomes all babies, children, adults, and families for christenings – whatever shape that family takes.
You do not have to be married or have been a regular churchgoer – as a parent, you do not even have to have been baptized yourself – though you could be.
Everyone is welcome at Bournville Parish Church. Just ask if this is something you are considering for you or your child.
