Baptism is the rite of initiation into the Christian faith. Individuals are baptized with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
The best place to start is by asking this question. Come and have a conversation with our priest after a Sunday service or during the week. Baptism preparation is available for adults seeking baptism or parents seeking to have their child baptized a Christian.
Preparation involves gaining an understanding of your already present relationship with God, the process of being welcomed into the Christian community, the vows you will make, and what living a new Christian life entails. To start the conversation, contact our priest, Fr. Brendon, at the Church Office.
The text for the Rite of Baptism and more information can be found on page 146 of the Book of Alternative Services [PDF]
Everything. To follow Jesus as an individual or as a family is to offer your entire life to God. But it is worth it and it is amazing! As with all aspects of God’s grace, baptism is free for all willing to accept Jesus into their lives and follow His way.
