In the Service of Thanksgiving,
- We ask you formally to name your child;
- We give thanks to God and pray for his blessing on your child;
- We pray for you as parents in the task of bringing children up.
- Your child’s sponsors (‘godparents’) act as witnesses to this event and promise to support you in this endeavour.
We are committing you and your child to God’s love and care. He will happily hear our prayers. This is always an important family time of thanksgiving, and we treat it as such.
Please note that there is no water in this service. And, of course, children will need to make their own personal response of faith towards God as they grow into maturity.
Thanksgiving Services are normally held on Sundays, commencing at 12:30pm. They typically last 40 minutes. No payment or fee is expected, as the service is our gift to you.
Available dates can be discussed with one of our Ministers. Please be aware that some lead-time is often required before we can find a mutually suitable date.
If you wish to proceed, we encourage you to attend one of our Sunday services soon and ask someone to introduce you to a Minister. We’ll be delighted to meet you and can take things from there. Both the 9:45am and the 5pm services have a crèche and Sunday School attached (click here for more information!)
Of course, you can also ring our office with further queries (4228 9132).
