Holy Trinity Messingham



Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make right choices in life, for themselves and for others.

A christening, or baptism, is just the beginning of this and so much more.

Over the years to come, it’s a journey you’ll share together with your child by:

  • Being there for your child to talk to about the bigger questions of life – questions about hope, faith and love.
  • Praying for your child through the ups and downs of their faith journey.
  • Showing them practically how to make those good choices in life.
  • Helping them to learn more about their Christian faith, through their church and in other ways.

So it’s a commitment to start as you mean to go on.

During a christening your child will be baptised with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family.

At Holy Trinity we usually hold baptisms on the third Sunday of the month at 12:00 midday. You are very welcome to call our administrator who will talk you through the initial process and let you know when we are able to baptise your child. We will always seek to visit you before the service to discuss any particular questions with you and ensure that you can make the most of your child’s christening. Please call Mrs Lynne Wetherall – the parish administrator on 07775803379 for more information.
