Baptism

We desire every person to have faith in Jesus Christ, because we know that such faith brings love, hope, joy and peace that is beyond imagining and comprehension!

Baptism is a visible sign of that faith.

Understanding what this means requires a conversation, rather than an explanation on a website.

If you are interested in exploring baptism, we encourage you to come along to church and introduce yourself to the Rector, Rev’d Michael Armstrong. He will love to meet you, and will also provide you with a booklet about baptism, and encourage you to think about all this entails. To be perfectly upfront – it does include making a commitment from you to join us in church regularly (if you don’t already do so).

If this is more than you are able to commit to at this time, then perhaps a Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child (see below) might be a great option for you?

 

A Service of Thanksgiving
for the Gift of a Child

Life, and especially new life, is very sacred. We recognise the desire of parents and grandparents to celebrate the birth of children and to ask God to bless them as they begin their journey.

The ‘Service of Thanksgiving for the Gift of a Child’ is a short liturgy which makes no demands of belief or commitment from the parents. Instead, it expresses our deepest wishes and desires and pronounces God’s blessing on your child. It is a meaningful liturgy which brings together the past and the present.

The Service may be conducted at any location within reasonable travel distance or within the church at a suitable time to be negotiated between the minister and the family.

The Service is also able to be personalised to your family and situation. A sample copy can be downloaded here.
