showcase baptism


When someone is baptised, that person is brought to Jesus Christ, and made a member of Christ’s Church. It is a new start to life in which the baptised person is accepted and sealed by God with the Holy Spirit to represent Christ to the world.

As part of the baptism service, we declare our faith and intention to serve Christ, and ask for God’s continuing grace to support us in the task, to which we are called. When a baptism is of a baby or a child, the baptised receives the love and shared faith of the family to grow up into Christ.
Through prayer and fellowship within the body of Christ, God strengthens and nourishes us. Jesus Christ came that we might have life, and have it in all its fullness.

Thanksgiving for the gift of a child

This service provides an opportunity for parents and families to give thanks for the birth or adoption of a child and to offer prayer for family
life. It can take place in the church or at home or any other suitable setting. This service has no connection with Baptism, which is the sacrament of initiation into the Church, the body of Christ, but it is sometimes felt to be more appropriate by some parents for their children.

Confirmation & Renewal of Baptismal Vows

This is an opportunity for someone to make for themselves the promises made at Baptism and is usually an adult commitment.
