Simply put, the sacrament of Baptism is the way in which the church welcomes people into the family of God. God’s love for the world has been declared through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. In Baptism we respond to God’s love by declaring our desire to live our lives in an awareness of God’s constant love and presence. Baptism is the sign of new life in Jesus Christ. When we are baptised we become members of the household of God and join with others on their Christian journey, seeking and giving support to one another.
Frequently Asked Questions about Baptism
Who are the Sponsors?
At least one sponsor (Godparent) is required. This person must be baptized themselves and it would be helpful if they were active in a church family. They do not have to be Anglican.
Is there a fee?
There is no fee charged by the church or the minister for baptism. If you would like, you may choose to make a donation to the church at the time of the baptism.
Do I need to be re-baptized?
If you were baptized in any Christian church at any age you do not need to be re-baptized. If you would like to re-affirm your vows, this can be done during a Baptism service.
How do I find out more?
Please speak to our minister and arrange a time to meet to discuss your questions further. Find contact details on our contact us page.
