Christenings - Just Ask....

The Church offers Baptisms or Christenings to people of any age. You can find out more about Christenings by visiting the Church of England's website. There is information for parents, godparents and guests. If you are thinking of getting christened yourself, you may find this website helpful. If you have any questions about christenings please just ask!

If you would like to talk about booking a Christening, please contact the vicar, Patrick (01603 250844 or Email). When dates and times have been agreed, please send a completed application form, downloadable below, to the Parishes Office. Patrick will also meet with you in the days before the Christening to talk through what christening means and to look at the service.

Christenings at our church normally take place during the main 10am Sunday service but we can discuss other times and days if that would help. Noon on Sunday often works well.

There is no charge for a christening but if you need a service outside of normal services there normally wouldn’t be music. In that case our organist may be available to play before and after and hymns during the service for a fee of £50 for services on Sunday (£60 at other times). 

If you might like your child christened at Christ Church please see this leaflet (Word version)containing information and an application form. Please discuss dates and times with Patrick before sending in the form to the Parishes Office (41 Church Lane, Norwich, NR4 6NW; Email).
