Christening

There's a really great new website about Christenings - do have a look

If you live in the parish of St Neots we shall be glad to christen your child. The parish lies to the east of the River Ouse and the North of the Henbrook. So it includes the old town, the Sandfields estate, the Longsands Road area, Priory Park and Loves Farm.

If you live in another part of the town or elsewhere, we shall be happy to give you details of how to get in touch with the vicar there. But if you are certain you would like your child to be christened here, please get in touch

We think that baptism / christening (the two words mean the same thing) is important. It means belonging to Jesus Christ and being a member of his church.

When you contact us, somebody from the Church, usually a priest, will come and see you to arrange the date, to invite you to come to Church one Sunday morning, and to offer our help. What sort of help? You have a child to bring up. You want the child to grow up to know the God who gave him or her life. You are clearly the best people to do this, but you may like our help in doing it. We can give it in a number of ways:

  • Come and worship with us as part of Christ's people together on Sundays;
  • Join in some of our other activities for young families and children (see the children's pages);

We welcome children and families unreservedly and want you to be part of our fellowshp. We are also here to help you in any way we can. We hope that you will always feel that St Neots Parish Church is your Church and that it is a place where you can find God.

Give us a ring or email us at office@stneots.org
