Anyone can get in touch with us to find about having their child or themselves christened. During a christening your child / you will be baptized with water. It’s the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child / you and a special day for all your friends and family.

Our latest baptism at St. Laurence’s Lanzarote: On April 24th we welcomed Ella Macdonald into the Church – Ella has been a “regular” worshipper for a few months together with her Mum Sara and her nanna Bella. How wonderful it is to hear her actively responding in our services.

We welcomed Indie Blu Deacon from into the Church. Fr. Stan baptized this precious child in our service on February 13, 2022.


Your child is precious to you and precious to God. You want the very best for them, and so does God. You want them to make right choices in life, for themselves and for others.

A christening is just the beginning of this and so much more.

Over the years to come, it’s a journey you’ll share together with your child by:

  • Being there for your child to talk to about the bigger questions of life – questions about hope, faith and love.
  • Praying for your child through the ups and downs of their faith journey.
  • Showing them practically how to make those good choices in life.
  • Helping them to learn more about their Christian faith, through their church and in other ways.

So it’s a commitment to start as you mean to go on.

Please note that normally Baptisms will only take place at one of our regular Sunday services, when we welcome the newly baptised into the family of the Church.
