Child Blessings

In our lives there are important life events which we sometimes choose to recognise in community. Here at Walmsley Unitarian Chapel, child blessings are viewed as a choice to welcome children into this spiritual environment. (I.e; this is not a sacrament/necessary rite of passage.)

Here, spiritual community and a sense of belonging are valued and ceremonies are meaningful though connecting in the congregation over time.

To find out more about the Chapel and Unitarian ethos please come along to Sunday services conducted by the Minister,* and download our 'Child Blessing/Welcoming Ceremonies information leaflet'. Leaflets are also available in the Chapel on Sundays.
*(Services conducted by the Minister are listed on the info line and, usually, the website and Chapel grounds notice board.)
