(from The Baptism Service)
The Grosvenor Chapel is delighted to celebrate the sacrament of baptism for children and adults living in Mayfair, past and present members of the congregation, and many others.
Baptisms normally take place during the principal Sunday Service at 11am, or as a private ceremony following it from 1.00pm onwards, or on Saturdays. The chapel rooms are available to hire for receptions following the service and details of catering services are available on request. When receptions take place a later start time is required for the baptism service.
Parents and godparents (there must be at least two who should be baptised themselves and over 17 years old) affirm their faith on behalf of the child and promise to bring the child up as a Christian: that is to follow the teachings of Jesus and continue his work in the community he founded for this purpose, the worshipping community of the Church.
In the first instance, contact the Administrator (020 7499 1684) to arrange a meeting to discuss the baptism. For information about the meaning of Baptism see: http://www.cofe.anglican.org/lifeevents/baptismconfirm/sectionb.html
We do encourage that families seeking the baptism of their child attend Sunday worship to familiarise themselves with the Chapel and its community. It is good for us to get to know families. The Chapel has an active Sunday Club for children. So please do, "Come and see!"
Every year, on the Feast of the Baptism of Christ, when the Church remembers the time when Christ was baptised, we make a special invitation to all those who were baptised in the last few years at the Chapel and their Godparents, so that the Baptismal Vows can be renewed and we can pray for the growth of faith of those baptised. The next Service will be on January 10th 2016.
Since we completed the work on the kitchen, Garden Room and patio, known as "Beth's Garden", a number of families have taken the opportunity to hire our wonderful new facilities for a post-baptism reception. The rooms lend themselves to relaxed and intimate get-togethers and this saves the need to travel on to an alternative venue. We are also happy to recommend an excellent caterer. Please enquire at the office for further details.
