In Baptism, parents thank God for His gift of life and make a decision to start the child on the journey of faith and ask for the Church’s support. Confirmation marks the point in the Christian journey when you affirm the faith into which you were baptised.
The Church of England conducts over 2,500 christenings every week of the year. Everyone is welcome to have their baby or child baptized at a Christening in their parish church and it remains a popular decision for parents.
