Baptisms & Thanksgivings


If you are thinking about having your child baptised, congratulations on their birth, whether it was very recent or a little while ago now.  For most of us, the arrival of a child is a very significant milestone in our lives, and we want to celebrate it with our family and friends.


At St. Benedict's, we see children as a precious gift from God and want to help you mark this special occasion.


We have therefore prepared a guide to help you find out more about Baptism and Thanksgiving services @ St. Benedict's.  To access a copy of this leaflet (Christening Services), please press here.

Let the children come to me

Then little children were being brought to him in order that he may lay his hands on them and pray.  The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs."  And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.

Matthew 19: 13 -15
