Thanksgiving Service

Thanksgiving and welcome


A new life is certainly a good reason to celebrate.


You may not know that there is a service entitled "Thanksgiving" for the gift of a child.


This service is specifically for those parents who wish to say ‘thank you’ to God.


This may be for a safe delivery, for new life and to celebrate a new member of the family. 


What is involved?


The service of Thanksgiving does not require parents to choose godparents, and there is no need to make public promises to God which you may not yet feel ready to make.


This service may be a private celebration at home or it may be a public celebration in church.


What will it cost?


There is no cost, but you are asked to make a donation to the Church


This service is not the same as Baptism.


If you think you would like to discuss a service of Thanksgiving please contact the vicar who will arrange to meet with you and discuss everything in a relaxed and friendly way.


Please remember not to book anything until we have confirmed the date with you.
