We welcome all parents who wish to bring their child to receive the Christian Sacrament of Infant Baptism. Infant Baptism however is only the very first step of the Christian Life. Children brought for Infant Baptism are blissfully unaware of what is being done on their behalf. During the following few years of growth and development the child that has received Infant Baptism will require much nurturing in the Christian Faith by Parents, Godparents and Family.
It is important that Parents understand that Infant Baptism is a significant event in the life of their child that commits them to providing access to Christian Teaching until their child is able to confirm their own beliefs in the Christian Faith.
If you wish to have your child baptised then please speak to one of the Leaders at Church following one of our services. If you are unable to do this please contact a Church Official through our telephone number or Email Address above.
If you wish to be married at Grappenhall IM Church we would expect you to meet at least one of the following criteria.
That you already worship with us on a regular basis.
That you were once part of our fellowship but no longer live in the area.
That you live in either Grappenhall, Thelwall, Stockton Heath or Latchford and are prepared to attend services on a regular basis.
Providing you meet one of the above conditions you should first speak to a Church Leader following a Church Service. All enquiries must be made in person. Those who are not regular attenders will be required to complete an application form. It is not possible to discuss wedding arrangements via the telephone.
Those wishing to take their enquiry further will then be interviewed by a Church Leader who will then decide whether to perform the marriage ceremony.
If a loved one has requested a Christian Funeral we will willingly assist at this most difficult of times. Your Funeral Director should know who to contact at the Church but if you have any difficulty please contact us by our Telephone Number above.
