BAPTISM AND CONFIRMATION

THANKSGIVING

We are delighted to offer a service of Thansgiving to God after the birth of every child.
Please contact the Parish Office for further information.
 
 
Baptism
 
If you are considering baptism for either yourself or a child there are three important questions there are three important questions to ask yourself
  • Do you reject the devil and all rebellion against God?
  • Do you renounce the deceit and corruption of evil?
  • Do you come to Christ, the way, the truth and the life?

The Vicar will ask you (or the parents and godparents on behalf of a child) to make these and other important declarations. Water will be poured on the head of the person to be baptised. Water is a sign of washing and cleansing. In baptism it is a sign of being washed free from sin and beginning a new life with God.

 

Baptisms, often called Christenings, normally take place at 11:15am on the fourth Sunday of each month.

 

Confirmation

If you are baptised and would like to consider confirmation, please contact the Parish Office.

At Confirmation, those who have been baptised affirm for themselves the faith into which they have been baptised and their intention to live a life of responsible and committed discipleship.

 

Through prayer and the laying on of hands by the confirming bishop, the Church also asks God to give them power through the Holy Spirit to enable them to live in this way.
