Baptisms and Thanksgivings

Baptism of children and adults, Service of Thanksgiving for a Child and Confirmations in the Land’s End Benefice

Baptism is much more than a joyous occasion or simply naming the child - the church community comes together and the parents and godparents make important promises about bringing the baby up in the Christian faith. In the Land’s End Benefice we can help you explore the meaning behind these promises and make the most of your own, or your child's, Baptism.

In the Land’s End Benefice we have baptisms, for adults as well as children, and thanksgivings; both in the services on a Sunday and sometimes at other times when people want something a bit quieter. When we meet with you to talk over the service we can explore what is best for you and your family. There are lots of things to find out about and it is best done at a meeting with one of the minsters in the benefice.  One thing you can be sure of is that we look forward to meeting anyone interested in baptism, and making this first stage of the Christian journey as special as possible. Do just give us a call or email – details on the contacts page.

When you are ready to take on the adult responsibilities of faith after your baptism you are invited to prepare for your confirmation. In our team we have regular courses for confirmation which are planned around the needs of those attending. If you are interested learning more please give us a call or email
