Baptism is a sacred ceremony where someone is either emersed in or sprinkled with water. Baptism symbolises the washing away of sin, the start of a new life in Jesus Christ, and membership into his body the church.
In the Anglican Church we baptise anyone who professes faith in Jesus, whether young or old.
We love to welcome children into God's family. When a child is baptised, the parents, supported by godparents, are committing their child to be raised in the faith that they as adults profess. Parents should be faithful Christians, committed to raising their child as a follower of Jesus in the community of a church.
Often families want to mark the milestone of a new born child before God and in a church building. We offer a Thanksgiving Service that gives thanks for the life of a new baby and asks for God's help for parents and loved ones to help raise them.
If you'd like to arrange a baptism or thanksgiving please contact our office.
Alternatively you can attend any of our Churches for public worship or join in other activities with us.
