If you are looking to replace your baptismal font and would like a baptismal bowl that will fit into the existing font or something that is simply portable, then this incredibly beautiful ceramic font bowl is a real possibility. Perfect for baptism by affusion (where water is poured on the head) or aspersion (the sprinkling of water) a baptismal font bowl is a practical alternative to a fixed item of furniture. Please contact us for further details regarding size, design and price at email@example.com. The one pictured here measures 44cm in diameter and approximately 12cm in height. As a rough guide the price will be around £380.00 but each one will vary depending upon the design. This is a lovely way to use a legacy that may be given or left to the church by a member of the congregation.
Please note that these fonts are not available 'off the shelf'. Each one is made bespoke for the customer. We will contact you after you have placed your order, or contact us before placing an order, and the font is made after your specific requirements have been discussed and agreed.
The Revd Nathan Jarvis who commissioned the font bowl pictured, says: “We all know that we rely on water. Nothing would grow without it. Life would be barren and dry. It is the same with our spiritual life. We use water a lot in church. We use it liturgically, practically, and symbolically. We ask the Holy Spirit to come and bless it as we prepare to baptise a child, and we remember our own baptisms several times a year by being sprinkled with it in the morning service. The font is one of the first things you see when entering our beautiful ancient church. This is no coincidence. Water is the beginning of our journey with Christ. Come and see it for yourselves, stop and ponder the Living Waters. Be refreshed and renewed.”
