Question & Answer

Q

How can I book a baptism for my child?

A

That is a great question and we are keen to help.

Ideally come to one of our services at St. Laurence either 10.30am or 6.30pm every Sunday. Enjoy the worship. You would be most welcome.

Then either meet me after the service or, if this is not possible,  introduce yourselves and ask how you can best contact us.

If you would prefer to start by making personal contact please telephone one of the wardens or email me at vicar@ansleychurch.org

Before any baptism is booked I like to meet the parents to talk about the meaning of baptism and think about how we can work together to help your child grow in faith and love.

Baptism services are normally held on Sunday afternoons.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Personal Profile
Rev. John Langlands

 It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the vicar of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
