Advice about having your baby baptised at Boxley Church

So, you want your child to be Christened?

The birth of a baby is a momentous event. Apart from sleepless nights, it’s a wonderfully exciting time as you wonder what your baby will be like as he or she grows up. It’s also a time when you may also feel quite vulnerable, wanting to protect your child and perhaps being more aware than usual of things that can go wrong.
At times like these we think of our need for security, and of needing to do the right thing for our children: making good choices for them while their still young that will set firm, good foundations for the rest of their life. Christening (Baptism) can be one of these things that we believe to be important for our children.
At a Christening Service God’s love for your child is affirmed; in response you and your Godparents make Promises which express your own trust in God and your intentions to nurture your daughter or son in the Christian faith.
Christening Services take place at all 3 churches. At Boxley church they are held on the 1st Sunday of each month. At Detling Church Christening Services are held on the 3rd Sunday afternoon each month at 3pm. Christenings can also form part of our morning All Age Services. At St. John's Grove Green  Christenings are held during the morning service. 
Whilst waiting for your child’s special day, we’d love to see you and get to know you all better; so feel free to join us at the All Age Services: 9am, 2nd Sunday  each month at Boxley; 1030 am 1st Sunday each month at Detling, or any Sunday morning at 10:30am in the school hall at St. John's School in Grove Green.
