Baptisms and


At St. Andrew's, Burnham-on-Sea

The first steps on a
lifelong journey

At a christening the parents and godparents promise to support their child, talk to them about the big questions in life, pray for them and show them how to make good choices in life. They also promise to help them learn about the Christian faith.

Everyone at the service will also be invited to promise to continue supporting the child on their journey of faith.

Questions answered
and resources for your christening journey

The Church of England have put together some fantastic resources to help you discover all you need to know about choosing, planning and going to a Church of England christening. There's guides for parents, godparents and guests as well as some great resources for the years following a christening.
