Infant Baptism in the Tring Team Parish - the beginning of an amazing journey
We are delighted that you are thinking about having your child baptized in church. There is no difference with a Christening and a baptism, babies are baptized during a christening service just as couples are ‘married’ during a ‘wedding’ service. Baptism is open to everyone. Your child is known and loved by God and is welcome in our church.
Your child is precious to you and precious to God and at Baptism you make a decision to start your child on an amazing journey of faith. It’s a journey of surprises, challenges and adventure. And through it all, God is always with us.
Everyone is welcome to have their children christened in any of the churches in our parish, either at one of our main Sunday morning service, or, because we realise it can difficult for family members to travel here for 10am we have some afternoon services. In St Peter & St Paul’s in Tring we have a service of Baptism at 12 noon on the first Sunday. In the villages we have no prearranged services so talk to us and we can try and arrange a service for you.
As well as coming to meet you the Vicar will encourage you to come to a Baptism Preparation session. These are run by Mike. You might also like to call Mike for a informal chat about Christenings on 01442 890407. These are after our Worship for All Service in Tring on the Second Sunday of the month. Another member of our congregation, Sally, looks after all the information that we need from you (names dates of birth etc) You can email both Mike and Sally at email@example.com (it is a shared email) and they can answer any questions that you have.
