Together in Tring
We are delighted that you are thinking about having your child baptised / christened in church. Some people are not sure of the difference between Baptism and Christening however they are the same thing.
Your child is precious to you and precious to God and at Baptism you make a decision to start your child on a journey of faith. At the service the church and the godparents commit to supporting you and your children and give thanks for your child as they start on their spiritual journey.
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 at later as we realise it can difficult for family members who have to travel to be here for 10am. In St Peter & St Paul’s in Tring we have a service of Baptism at 12 noon on the first Sunday of each month for those wanting it later, in the villages we have no prearranged services so talk to us about when and where. either way we are flexible and will work with you to find the right time.
