We offer an ‘Introduction to Baptism (Christening)’ over two evenings for parents who would like their child baptised. Godparents are also welcome and encouraged to attend.
Please contact the Church Office for further details.
For those who don’t regularly worship at St Leonard’s but want to celebrate the gift of a child, the Thanksgiving service is an excellent option. It is a special occasion when friends and family can gather and give thanks to God for a precious new life.
If you are mature enough to make your own decisions and you’ve decided you’d like to be baptised, you’ll have a baptism service that is designed for those who can make the promises for themselves. You may have been going to church for a while and want to make a more definite commitment in terms of your Christian faith.
Please contact the church office and arrange to meet with one of our ministry team to discuss this further.
For couples who would like a marriage service, please contact St Leonard’s church office for an application form. You will be asked a few initial questions regarding your eligibility to be married in the Church of England, and we offer Marriage Preparation sessions which all couples are encouraged to attend.
Please contact the church office if you would like more information, or check out this guide to Marriage and Blessing services in the Church of England.
