Child Blessings

child blessing People were bringing even little children for Jesus to lay his hands on them and pray for them.

The disciples tried to stop them, but Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them (Mark 19:13)

The Baptism (Christening) will normally be led by a Minister or Accredited Lay Preacher.

During this sacred ceremony water will be poured over your child's head, as we use water as a symbol of life, because there is no life without water. It's not magic.

This ancient ceremony welcomes your baby or child into the "Universal Church" and the wider human family.

If you were not Christened as a baby or child you are more than welcome to be baptised as an adult by the pouring of water over the head.

We also conduct House Blessings. In Christianity, house blessing is an ancient tradition. They are usually performed by a Minister or Local Lay Preacher. House blessings date back to the early days of Christianity. This rite is intended to bless the inhabitants of a building before moving into it or to "heal" the property after an occurrence. This is a very sensitive area of ministry and full confidentiality is assured. The Ministry of Bible and Prayer is extended to those seeking our help.

"Martha welcomed Jesus into her house" (Luke 10:38)
