Baptism

Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs”.

Whether you have a young child you hope to welcome into the Anglican communion, or as an adult you are exploring your faith, we would love to hear from you.

Baptism symbolises a new beginning. When someone is baptised, that person is made a member of Christ’s church, and takes his or her place as a representative of Jesus Christ to the world. Through baptism, the person declares his or her commitment to following and serving Jesus, and asks for God’s grace and support. Baptism is also a way of affirming God’s love, and recognising that we are accepted and loved unconditionally.

Our Parish Priest will meet with you to discuss the baptism at a time that suits you. We encourage you to bring everyone who might be involved, including godparents.
