What the Baptism Service is all about
- looks to the future and makes promises
- is a Church celebration - welcoming a new member
- includes a declaration of faith in Christ and commitment to church membership
Since Baptism includes promises of commitment to Christ and church membership, we assume parents already worship with us - or are beginning to do so.
- is a special service, arranged every few months as part of our church programme
At regular intervals we hold Preparation Evenings to discuss baptism. Both parents, together with as many of the godparents who are able, attend the evening.
If you decide tto commit yourselves and your child to Christ in Baptism, we discuss which of the church's future baptism dates is the most convenient for you ...
For example there will be three Baptism services during 2010, the first one being on 28th February.
All services start at 10.45 am.
The church does not see Baptism as an 'event' - just a special occasion, and part of a journey ..
a journey shared by parents and children ...
a journey of a growing Faith in Jesus ...
and a journey of sharing in the life of His family, the Church.
