CENTRAL TELFORD PARISH


REFLECTING JESUS EVERYWHERE

Baptisms

Baptisms
We are really pleased to hear that you are interested in having your child Baptised at one of the Churches in the Central Telford Parish. We believe that Baptism is an extremely important step for anyone to take because it involves making life-changing promises and so it is our desire that those involved are fully equipped to decide whether they feel able to make these promises.  

We would like to invite you to our next Baptism Preparation Course, where you will have an opportunity to discuss the issues involved and make up your mind about what is best for you and/or your child.
 If you contact our Parish Office, admin@telfordchurch.co.uk,  we will be able to tell you where and when the next course is taking place and to invite both parents (where appropriate) and the godparents to be present, so that you can talk about what this means for each of you and your child.

The sessions last around an hour and a quarter and we promise to keep these sessions to time to help make your babysitting arrangements easier. They are a mixture of DVD, discussion and some simple interactive exercises and after the course we will give you the opportunity to respond to what we have looked at together, and we will also be able to offer possible dates for a baptism.

There is a response form which we would like you to return it to Dawley Christian Centre (either by email or by post) so that we know that you are coming to the course.
  Being baptised means being a part of the Church family and so we want to welcome you to this family! 

We would also encourage you to come along to services in the Church where you think your child may be baptised and find out more about the community in which you and your child will grow up. Also enclosed is a sheet of “Frequently Asked Questions” which, we hope, will answer most of the questions you may have, but please feel free to contact the Parish Coordinator, Lyn Corbett, on 07914 837534 or by email at baptism@telfordchurch.co.uk if you would like to know more.
