Pray and invite

If you’re praying for godparents everywhere, invite baptism families along to join in too. Resources on this page will help.

Our research indicates that 9 out of 10 families who visit the church for a life event want to hear from us again. Whether they live around the corner or several counties away, the church where a family’s special service was held will be close to their hearts. So an individual invitation to a special service where the christening of their child will be remembered and celebrated is not something that will be dismissed lightly. Write personalised invitations and plan the service with godparents and godchildren at the centre.
