Baptism or Christening is a sign that someone is beginning to follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and that he or she is joining with others as disciples in God's Church.
Baptism can be received at any stage of life, from infancy to twilight years. We believe in one baptism for the forgiveness of sins, which means that it can occur only once in your life.
A baptised person becomes a full member of the Church. An adult who wishes to make a public declaration of baptismal promises, perhaps made on his or her behalf in infancy, can do so in the service of Confirmation.
Baptism is a gift from God and, in our church, is open to everyone. You do not need to be a member of the church in order to have a child baptised. The Rector will be happy to explain what is involved in the service and what it all means.
To discuss arrangements for a baptism, please contact the Rector.
