Arranging a Christening at St Mark's

We would be delighted to arrange a Christening service (during which your child will be baptised) at St Mark's Dukinfield.

A Christening is a first step on an amazing journey getting to know God. During the special ceremony, parents and godparents will make promises to bring the child to church, to pray for them and support their faith journey. 

To start the process of arranging a Christening, please come and see us one Sunday. Any Sunday will do - our services start at 10.30 am. That way you can get to know the church family that you want your child to join. After the service, the priest in charge will take your contact details and details about your child and give you some information about the meaning of Christenings to help you prepare for this special service. 

Christenings take place normally at 12.30 pm on Sundays in church.

We look forward to getting to know you and helping you plan this important ceremony. Please look at the Church of England's website for further details such as who can be Godparents - www.churchofenglandchristenings.org
