Considering Baptism?


Some questions to ask yourself: 

Am I prepared to the best of my ability to give my child a Christian upbringing within the family of Christ's Church?
Will I help the child to be regular in public worship and private prayer, not only through teaching, but by my example?
Will I pray regularly for my child?
Will I encourage my child in due time to come to Confirmation and Communion?
Can I make the promises that will be required of me in the Baptism Service with integrity?

If you think carefully about all the above questions, you will realize that having a child Baptized involves you in a commitment to the Christian faith as much as it does the child. Because of this it is essential that a period of preparation precedes the Baptism, especially for those who have had very little contact with the Church.

Some parents take this opportunity to reflect on their own Christian faith. We run a regular Christianity Explored course where small groups can talk about faith and ask questions in a relaxed atmosphere.

Please contact us for details of the next course or if you would like to chat about any aspect of the Christian faith.
