Baptism/Christening Thanksgiving

For Babies and Children:

We’re delighted you’re thinking of baptism, christening or thanksgiving for your child. Your child is precious to you and precious to God. If you are resident in Muxton or Lilleshall (map of Muxton parish, map of Lilleshall parish), or you have a strong link with either of the churches, you are welcome to have a thanksgiving or have your child baptised/christened in either church.


For You:

You are never too old to be baptised. The important thing is that it has to be a personal decision for you.  Contact us using our contact form, and a member of our Baptism & Thanksgiving Team will arrange to meet you and talk over the options you have.

Your Loved One’s Funeral

A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth. It is the opportunity for those of us who are friends and family to express our grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world and to commend the person into God’s keeping. For more information about funerals click here.
