Celebrating the Birth of a Baby

At St. Pancras we welcome all parents who want to celebrate the birth of their baby with a service of baptism or thanksgiving. Baptism involves the parents and godparents making a number of declarations about their own Christian faith and their intention to bring up the child in that faith. Some parents choose a dedication service to celebrate the birth instead of baptism because the element of commitment is more open.

Baptisms and thanksgivings take place in our morning services. This helps to underline the significance of baptism:

  • Becoming part of the family circle of the wider Church; 
  • A commitment to Christ. For an infant who is too young to understand, it is really the parents who are committing themselves to make sure their child joins in the relevant Church groups so that he or she can learn about Jesus. 

To help parents fulfil the vows they will take at their child’s baptism, all parents take part in three sessions of baptism preparation. 

If you would like to arrange a service of baptism or thanksgiving, please download our Baptism and Dedication Application Form and return it to any member of staff at one of our services.
