Leuchars St Athernase

Baptism and Blessing of Babies and Children

If you would like to talk about baptism or a service of blessing for your child, please contact the minister. 

In both cases, this would take place during worship on Sunday morning, either at the 9.30 am service in Burnside Hall, Balmullo or the 11.00 am service in Leuchars St Athernase (your choice). 

The main difference between the two is that in baptism, parent(s) (or someone standing in for them) is asked to profess their own faith and promise to bring up the child in the Christian faith. No promises are made in a service of blessing, but both celebrate God’s gift of children. 

Family and friends are welcome to attend the service.

No charge is made but often a donation is given to the Church.
