The national Church or England have a good website about Christenings - do have a look. 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.

If you live in the parish of St Neots with Eynesbury we would be glad to christen your child at either of our churches. The parish is the whole of the town to the east of the River Ouse, including the areas east of the main railway line.

If you live in Eaton Ford or Eaton Socon, or further afield, and have a connection with our parish that means you would like your child to be christened here, then we still would be happy to christen your child - but we would need to seek the goodwill of your local vicar.

When you contact us to arrange a date, somebody from the Church, usually the minister, will contact you to make a visit (if possible), to invite you to come to Church one Sunday morning, and to outline how we can help your child to grow up to know the God who gave him or her life. You might want, for example, to:-

  • 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 are pained by the limitations that current restrictions (even when open for services) place upon us. We welcome children and families unreservedly and want you to be part of our fellowship, and hope that you will always feel that St Neots and Eynesbury Parish Churches (and our partner church at Love's Farm) are your churches, a place where you can find God.

Here are some photos of some recent baptism services conducted by the previous Vicar of St Neots. Our new Rector and his colleagues will be delighted to meet you.
