In Baptism, we thank God for His gift of life and publicly acknowledge His love. In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young children; this is sometimes known as christening.
Baptism is a 'sacrament' (holy ritual to symbolise grace) in the Christian tradition that is traced back to Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.
Baptisms take place during our Sunday Morning worship after a time of preparation.
During the service you will be asked to gather around the font with the Godparents as we ask God's blessing and the parents and godparents will make baptisamal promises on behalf of the child.
If you have been asked to be a Godparent and would like to know more, this page - Godparent FAQ - is very helpful.
