We love to record Baptisms here. If it takes place during a regular service we may ask you then and take photographs. If it is at another time please send details, and a photo if possible, to the webmaster for inclusion on this page.
Alexandra Rose McMurray
Alexandra was baptised in St Paul's, Aldbrough on 11 August 2019 by Rev Camilla Campling--Denton. It was a very lively service attended by lots of families with lots of children who came and sang one of the hymns themselves as they knew it but most of the adults didn't.
Alexandra is 9mths old and Mum Abby Minette and Dad Alexander McMurray also have big sister Keira (8) and brother Zak (4).
It was a joy to have so many of their friends and family there to welcome Alexandra to the church.
George Peter Davenport was baptised in East Layton Church on Sunday, 26 January and is seen here with parents Sarah and James.
George's christening gown was made by Sarah's Mum for her christening in 1991, also at East Layton! She added a ribbon when it was worn by Sarah's sister,Kimberley, in 1995. Then she added a blue ribbon for George. What a lovely tradition.
Connie Erin Lees
Connie Erin Lees was baptised in St Paul's, Aldbrough on 24 April 2022 by Rev Camilla Campling Denton. Connie was already 2 years old as her original intended baptism date had to be postponed due to covid-19. Connie's big sister, Pippa, had chosen the bible reading from her book of bible stories - the one where the man who can't walk is lowered through the roof of a house to reach Jesus and is healed by him. (see Luke 5: 17 - 39 for the full biblical version)
Connie's parents, Anthony and Ann, also had a party planned in the village hall for the crowd of family and friends who were there. It would have been a really happy day for them all after the difficulties of the past 2 years.
Our pictures show Connie being presented with her Baptismal Candle and the Godparents with the Lees family plus Revd Camilla.
