BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASSES




During the months of pregnancy you will have been busy preparing for the arrival of your child - preparing the child’s room, checking you have all the baby equipment, reading helpful books and magazines, and so on.

Amongst all these preparations, one of the activities parents find most helpful and reassuring is attending ante-natal classes. It is often the case that friendships formed through these classes are continued for years afterwards.

In the same way, parents new to our Church Family tell me that the baptism classes we run are among the most helpful aspects of our preparation scheme. These classes cover two consecutive Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. We run them five times a year. The dates for the next set of classes are available from the Parish Office on 01474 703819.

 




These classes are helpful for a number of reasons:

* You will have the opportunity to meet with
   other young families who are also looking
   forward to the baptism of their child.    This is part of the process of building up
   the network of friendships within the
   Church Family.

* You will have the chance to consider the
   central aspects of the Christian faith,
   what we believe about God the Father,
   Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

* You will be able to look at the baptism
   service in detail and to ask any questions
   about its meaning.

If at all practical, we encourage you to invite your godparents along to these preparation sessions as well.
