Baptism

Whenever it happens, whether as a baby, child or adult, baptism is at the heart of an amazing journey of faith as a follower of Jesus Christ. You are never too old to take this step, and being baptized as an adult is a wonderful experience. 

In baptism we join together, as sisters and brothers, on our Christian journey. Baptism unites us with Christ and to his whole Church, on earth and in heaven. We shall do all that we can to ensure that there is a welcoming place for you and to play our part in helping those being baptised to grow as a disciple of Jesus.

Baptism connects us with the story of Christ’s birth, death and resurrection, the pattern of his loving life, and the teaching that he gave. We pray that those being baptised will come closer to God as they grow in faith, explore the Bible, and make their baptismal promises.

As well as worshipping with the church community, Christians follow Jesus by standing up for truth and justice, and showing compassion to those in need. They are to be faithful and loving. The people of God are called to share the Good News of Jesus and to invite the Holy Spirit to lead, transform and guide them in their everyday lives.
