Thanksgiving

We offer a service of Thanksgiving for a number of different occasions:

  • the private celebration of a birth or adoption, at home or in church with only family and close friends present;
  • the public celebration of the birth or adoption of a number of children, perhaps in church on a Sunday afternoon;
  • the public celebration of the birth or adoption of a number of children as part of a main Sunday act of worship.

It is designed to meet the needs of:

  • parents who see this as a preliminary to Baptism;
  • parents who do not wish their children to be baptized immediately;
  • others, who do not ask for Baptism, but who recognize that something has happened for which they wish to give thanks to God.

If you choose to have a Thanksgiving, you may also have a Baptism service for your child at a later date.
