- 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, should take place during the main service which is the 9:30am service. However alternative times can be accommodated by arrangement.
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.
