Baptism

events2We are thrilled that you are considering baptism for your child. We join with you in wanting this life event to be marked well, both in celebration and in sincerity.

In baptism, you as parents are thanking God for his gift of life, deciding to start your child on a journey of faith and asking for the Church’s support.

For your child, baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from the darkness of self-centredness, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family.

We ask that all parents bringing their children for baptism, attend our church on at least 3 occasions, so that you are comfortable with our style of community and can feel a part of its life. Then, after speaking to our vicar, we invite you to attend a friendly and informal 3 session course, designed to help you to understand the service and the meaning of each element. This will enable you to enjoy, and fully take part, in this important life event.

Adult baptism is also available for those who have not yet been baptised.

Please contact us if you would like more information.
