Baptism

What is baptism?

The admission of a person of any age into the church - The beginning of a journey with God which continues for the rest of their life.

Godparents

When a child is baptised, Godparents are appointed to make vows on behalf of the child.  Boys usually have two godfathers and one godmother and girls two godmothers and one godfather.

What happens?

During a baptism service, the candidate is signed with the sign of the cross using Holy Oil, given a Christian name, symbolically cleansed with water and given a lighted candle as a sign of Christ. 

When are baptisms held?

Usually on Sundays during the main service at 10:00am.
