Baptism -Baptism is a sacrament in the Christian tradition that is traced back to
Jesus himself being baptised in the river Jordan.
For anyone, Baptism marks the start of a journey of faith, which involves turning
away from all that is evil, turning towards Christ and becoming a member of the local
and worldwide Christian family.
In Baptism, we thank God for His gift of life and publicly acknowledge His love.
In the Anglican Church it is common to baptise young children; this is sometimes
known as christening. We are very happy to talk to adults about Baptism. As an adult
one has far more understanding of the journey of faith you are beginning. It will
be right that you come and worship with us for a little time and that you spend some
time talking with one of the Clergy about the reasons why you wish to be baptised.
They will help you and guide you through this.
If you would like to talk about the baptism of your child or your own journey of
faith, please contact Fr Paul.
