Welcome to St James Church Brownhills with Ogley Hay

                                                        Baptisms and Thanksgiving

  Baptisms and thanksgivings take place as part of the Family services on the 1st Sunday of each month.

 We baptise (christen) over a font, where their heads are sprinkled with water- a public declaration of faith  and  promises are made by you or made on behalf of the child, and prayers and blessings are said.

 Some families prefer to celebrate the gift of a child with a service of thanksgiving, During this service thanks is  given for the birth of a child (there is no promises to make about the christian faith- no water) the child will be  blessed and prayed for.

 Please contact  01543 372187 if you are interested in being baptised or if you would like to discuss  baptism/thanksgiving
