Baptism

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.

For anyone, Baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning away from all that is evil, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local and worldwide Christian family.

If you would like to discuss the baptism of your child or your own journey of faith, please contact Fr Stephen in church on Sunday morning or via our contact form to arrange an appointment to meet and talk further.
