Baptism

We are all precious and are loved unconditionally by God.

In baptism we make promises to share that love with God and his people. This can be made as an adult or in the case of children by their parents and godparents on their behalf.

Once someone has been baptised we consider them a full member of the Church. Baptism is a gift from God and we welcome anyone to baptism. You don’t need to be a member of the Church to have a baby baptised or christened. What matters is the commitment to trying to walk the journey of the Christian life.

Baptism involves:

Declaring belief in God

Making promises

A new beginning

Sharing in the death and resurrection of Jesus in a symbolic way

Joining the church family, local and worldwide.
