Celebrating Christening at Cilcain – a unique event
Christening Gowns at Cilcain
People from Cilcain and nearby gathered in St Mary’s Church on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 June to celebrate a unique event. ‘Celebrating Christening’ offered a mixture of historic Christening gowns, photographs, the historic parish Baptism registers, information about Christening and a chance to learn more about Christening.
The event climaxed with the Sunday morning congregation re-stating their own vows taken at their own Christening, and with the cutting of a specially baked celebration ‘Christening Cake’.
Cilcain Vicar, the Revd Adrian Copping, said “ It has been very enjoyable to see how people have been so keen to lend their own Christening gowns and other memorabilia, and to join in the celebration of an ongoing part of the church’s work”.
