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 comes as a faithful response to God’s love. Those who are baptised seek to publicly demonstrate their faith in Jesus.

Baptism means also taking up our responsibilities to God by becoming members of the Church, where together we encourage and nurture one another to be all that God dreams for us to be!

If you desire to be baptised, your first step is to therefore come to Church.

After the service please make yourself known to Rev’d Michael who will welcome you, and provide you with a booklet about baptism.

If you desire to continue to explore baptism after this meeting and reading the booklet, then we’ll set up a formal meeting with Rev’d Michael.

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. 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 ths a better optione minister and the family.

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

For further information please contact the Rector, Rev’d Michael Armstrong via email.
