(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 servic, 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.
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.
A number of families take the opportunity to hire the Chapel Garden Room and patio, known as "Beth's Garden" 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.
