Covid-19 response – Baptisms

Baptisms will need to be rearranged, and there will be a lot of disappointment. We’ll bring you new advice, information and resources here over time.

Baptisms will need to be rearranged, and there will be a lot of disappointment. We’ll bring you some new advice, information and resources here just a soon as we can.

churchofenglandchristenings.org has this brief page which includes links to prayers, so feel free to refer families to it if you wish. There will be more resources added over time.

Bless my family postcard (e-mailable version). Download it here

These colourful postcards could be sent to parents and godparents whom you have got to know through baptisms, but can equally well be shared with grandparents, uncles or aunts in your parish who may be missing their wider family right now. This card is designed to be used with all generations and could also be sent to families that attend Messy Church or a local church school.

If you’d like to put a card in the post rather than email, order your free pack from the Church Print Hub.

 

Paid-for resources

You can still send a card to families on the anniversary of their child’s baptism. There are lots of card variations to choose from with contemporary and traditional designs and a choice of language which refers to ‘baptism’ or ‘christening’. Visit the Church Print Hub to see all the options.
