The birth of a child is a cause for celebration.

The Baptism service provides an opportunity for parent family and friends to give thanks for the birth of a child and to ask God to be part of that child’s journey through life.

Baptism is also an acknowledgement of the presence of God.

The three symbols used at baptism are:

  • Oil – a sign of belonging
  • Water – a sign of new life
  • Candle – a sign of Jesus, the light of the world

In baptism a child is welcomed into the church.
